Publisher's Summary

Once literally demonized as "the Devil's lettuce" and linked to all manner of deviant behavior by the establishment's shameless antimarijuana propaganda campaigns, Cannabis sativa has lately been enjoying a long-overdue Renaissance. So now that the squares at long last seem ready to rethink pot's place in polite society, how, exactly, can members of this vibrant, innovative, life-affirming culture proudly and properly emerge from the underground - without forgetting our roots or losing our cool?

In How to Smoke Pot (Properly), VICE weed columnist and former High Times editor David Bienenstock charts the course for this bold new postprohibition world. With plenty of stops along the way for "pro tips" from friends in high places, including cannabis celebrities and thought leaders of the marijuana movement, listeners will learn everything from the basics of blazing to how Mary Jane makes humans more creative and collaborative, nurtures empathy, catalyzes epiphanies, enhances life's pleasures, promotes meaningful social bonds, facilitates cross-cultural understanding, and offers a far safer alternative to both alcohol and many pharmaceutical drugs.

"It's a healthy development that society has reached the point where it needed this book, and I'm glad someone of David Bienenstock's eloquence and experience has written it." (Doug Fine, author of Hemp Bound)

Not really about How to Smoke, more like Cannabis 101

Was looking forward to hearing new ways to smoke but, this is really a primer on cannabis. Not much to say about smoking.

I wish I would have had this information when started...would have been helpful. Hydrate hydrate hydrate and always never smoke on an empty stomach.
