Reefer Madness: A History of Marijuana : Reefer Madness, a classic in the annals of hemp literature, is the first popular social history of marijuana use in America. Beginning with the hemp farming of George Washington, author Larry "Ratso" Sloman traces the fascinating story of our nation's love-hate relationship with the resilient weed we know as marijuana. Herein we find antiheroes such as Allen Ginsberg, Robert Mitchum (the first Hollywood actor busted for pot), Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, and more rapscallions standing up for, supporting, smoking, and politicizing the bounties of marijuana. With a fabulous new afterword by Michael Simmons, who has written for Rolling Stone, LA Weekly, and High Times, on the progress of the hemp movement and the importance of medical marijuana, Reefer Madness is a classic that goes one.
