Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spliffs (the Jamaican word for joints) is more than just a book about marijuana (cannabis) and getting high. It's a celebratory trip that explores the versatility of cannabis and the profound influenceit has had on cultures throughout history. Special sections are devoted to the influence of marijuana on music, movies, media, and literary and comic book culture. Features include profiles of famous users, as well as a primer on the varieties of hash and grass, on how to roll functional and decorative joints, pot paraphernalia, recipes for cooking with herb, and a guide to Amsterdam's most famous coffeeshops. Fully illustrated with full-color photographs and drawings throughout.

Book News Annotation:

Journalist Jones writes from his experience of cannabis as a dedicated user, successful purveyor, and unrepentant felon. He peppers his observations about the history and applications of cannabis with quotations from a variety of experts ranging from Charles Baudelaire to George Washington, examines related music and films, gives practical advice on locations, recipes, equipment and accessories, and includes a photographic field guide to various forms of cannabis and hashish. It is surprising that the book is square in format, but somehow not surprising that it appears not to be interested in an index.
