PrefaceWhen I asked Ed how to describe himself he thought for a moment. I could palpably feelhis brain working. Then he said, "I'm not surewhether I was placed on Earth as an agent of Cannabis or if I am just another advocate for justice. Marijuana, though important, is just oneof many issues."Whatever the reason, Ed has workedtirelessly to change the marijuana laws. He has participated on political campaigns, testified before Congress, helped defendants as an expertwitness, and advanced many organizations from behind the scenes. Most Important, he hasinspired many to organize and advocate achange in the marijuana laws.All of this has only tangential connection tothe material that Is in this book. Readersacquainted with Ed's writing will welcome the breadth of topics. New readers will find here agood introduction to his writing. His down-home, humorous style appeals to a wideaudience.For the record, Ed Rosenthal hasdocumented the transformation of potcultivation more successfully than arty other writer His books articles and columns have hada profound effect on consciousness In Americaand throughout the world
