Spliffs is more than just a book about cannabis and getting stoned. It is the story of a culture. From the Ancient Scythians and the Cult of the Assassins through its heady heyday among the flower-power hippies of the 1960s and the sensimillia revolution that was to follow, right up to the recent renaissance in hashish making in the marijuana-mecca of Amsterdam. The drug's gradually shifting legal status is also explored, as are its various therapeutic and medical applications. Hemp's versatility and impeccably eco-friendly credentials are unraveled, as are a plethora of pot parafernalia and websites. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned photographs this book is invaluable as a fascinating fund of information on the world's best loved drug.
