The new marijuana bible – POT CULTURE: The A-Z Guide to Stoner Language & Life (Abrams Image, $19.95), written by Shirley Halperin and Steve Bloom, with a foreword by Tommy Chong – is officially being released on 4/20, the official stoner holiday.
The book is already a success, with preorder sales prompting a second printing!
POT CULTURE lists more than 500 people, places, words and slang phrases (from “Acapulco Gold” to “zooted”). It’s also a how-to guide, an atlas, a book of manners, a cultural manifesto, a cookbook, and a cross-referenced history lesson on the world of weed. With hundreds of photos and illustrations, maps and charts, sidebars and first-person accounts, POT CULTURE dazzles and informs, educates and entertains about a subject that’s gone from taboo to practically mainstream.
POT CULTURE also brings you closer to the high-life of celebrity stoners, with facts, quotes, and photos of the famous (Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, Dave Chappelle) and the legendary (Bob Marley, Willie Nelson), as well as contributions by Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman, Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Superbad star Jonah Hill, America’s Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry, and many more.
