Format: Paperback
The Pot Smoker's Handbook is a great combination of funny, informative, instructional and historical information on cannabis culture.

** Funny: 420 things to do when you're stoned; 20 songs for 420; marijuana at the movies; and High Times all-star celebs.

** Informative: destinations for ganja travel; ways to become politically active; pot laws; the chemistry of pot; types and strains; pricing; the economy of pot

** Instructional: tips for rolling, smoking, and cooking pot; growing techniques; how to covertly smoke in a dorm room; how to deal with your dealer.

** Historical: pot in American history; The Cannabis Cup; awards; profiles of well-known pot-smokers

It truly is a handbook in that it covers every aspect of pot culture from the silly to the serious, but in a fun way.

Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
When cannabis prohibition ends sooner than later in North America, the legendary rebel publishing company Trans High Corporation (THC), publisher of High Times Magazine, will go down in the history books as the chronicle for the cannabis consuming community and, ironically, how popular cannabis became under government prohibition laws.

While an issue of High Times on the newsstand should not be missed, neither should readers' opportunity to read David Bienenstock's well-written and researched 'Official High Times Complete Smoker's Guide'. Bienenstock, an editor at the magazine, has delved deeply into High Times' impressive 33-year old archive and married some of the most iconoclastic images captured in popular culture regarding 'cannabis' with a solid sense of history and insightful observations gathered from within the cannabis law reform movement and emerging 'cannabusinesses' that populate America and Canada.

The 'Official High Times Complete Smoker's Guide' provides the reader a sneak peek into the world of what it is actually like to be, in effect, a professional pot smoker.

-Got a ganja smoker on your holiday present list?-
Are you or a like-minded family of friend into marijuana and 'cannabis culture'? If so, then David Bienenstock's 'Official High Times Complete Smoker's Guide' justly deserves a place in your--or their--personal libraries.

After cannabis prohibition ends in America (and Canada) books like Bienenstock's will make for a great read for future generations to view how the prohibition of an otherwise safe, natural and popular intoxicant and medicine came to be, what the prohibition era looked like and how popular culture, economics and cognitive liberty won the day over government tyranny and nitwittery.

Format: Paperback
As the head of a national marijuana reform organization, I've read A LOT of books about marijuana. This one ranks up there as one of the most fun and informative. Who better to lay out the various elements of marijuana than David Bienenstock and the folks at High Times? This book has tons -- or should I say kilos? -- of information on marijuana culture, politics, activism, entertainment, and more.

Whether you consider yourself a scholar or novice when it comes to the issues surrounding marijuana, you are sure to enjoy this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This paperback title written by David Bienenstock offers up all the information any interested or educated individual could ever want.

From detailing hash recipes to tips on how to survive the annual Cannabis Cup held in Amsterdam to the books memorable "Highstory" to downright hilarious suggestions of "things to do when you're stoned"... this book offers it all.

Perhaps the most important aspect of this book would be the chapter that details how to get involved and support the fight to legalize marijuana. The chapter informs and provides ways to be a little more "hard-hitting" rather than just shouting "Legalize it!" and thinking you're getting through to anyone. Support the organizations detailed in this chapter!

A "highly" suggested buy. It won't waste your time whether you are connoisseur, toker, or just want to be informed on cannabis culture.

Format: Paperback
"HIGH TIMES' Offical Pot Smoker's Handbook" is basically an "everything-you ever wanted to know about marijuana but were afraid to ask" reference source. It's a funny, informative book that's packed with photos, containing tons of HIGH TIMES' greatest content distilled into an easy-to-read guide. Chapters cover cannabis history, pot-friendly travel destinations, skills (like how to roll a perfect joint), stoner culture, activism and legal issues plus a great chapter called "Where Does Marijuana Come From?" that's all about how to grow pot. The "420 Things to Do" list is hilarious, and inspiring.

This book is well-designed, beautifully printed, and bound to be very popular!
