The Marijuana Chronicles 


Who wrote it?


Edited by best-selling crime novelist and artist Jonathan Santlofer


Plot in a Box:


A themed anthology about the good ole whacky tabaccy.


Invent a new title for this book:


The I Can't Believe It's The 21st Century and This Shit is Still (Mostly) Illegal Chronicles


Read this if you liked:


The Cocaine Chronicles edited By Jervey Tervalon and Gary Phillips, Claire DeWitt and The City of the Dead by Sara Gran (I was actually a little surprised Gran wasn't in this collection.

Said lead would be portrayed in a movie by:

Setting: Would you want to live there?
