POT CULTURE THE A-Z GUIDE TO STONER LANGUAGE & LIFE FEATURING INTERVIEWS WITH MELISSA ETHERIDGE AND MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY

PLUS CONTRIBUTIONS BY FALL OUT BOYıS JOE TROHMAN, MAROON 5'S ADAMLEVINE, REDMAN, AND MORE BY SHIRLEY HALPERIN & STEVE BLOOM / FOREWORD BY TOMMY CHONG JUST IN TIME FOR 4/20!!

POT CULTURE: The A-Z Guide to Stoner Language & Life (Abrams Image;April 20, 2008, $19.95), the first comprehensive guide for the devoted smoker and occasional toker, is everything you ever wanted to know about marijuana but were too stoned to ask. A multi-generational encyclopedia that lists more than 500 people, places, words and slang phrases (from "Acapulco Gold" to "zooted"), POTCULTURE is also a how-to guide, an atlas, a book of manners, a cultural manifesto, a cookbook, and a cross-referenced history lesson on the world of weed.

Dazed & Confused, the Harold & Kumar franchise, Dr. Dre's The Chronic... from movies to music to TV, marijuana has permeated American culture like never before. POT CULTURE, with its hundreds of photos and illustrations, maps and charts, sidebars and first-person accounts, dazzles and informs, educates and entertains about a subject that's gone from taboo to practically mainstream.

POT CULTURE also brings you closer to the high-life of celebrity stoners, with facts, quotes, and photos of the famous (Jack Black,Matthew McConaughey, Dave Chappelle) and the legendary (Bob Marley,Willie Nelson), as well as contributions by Fall Out Boy's Joe Trohman, Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Superbad star Jonah Hill, America's Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry, and manymore. Today's medical-marijuana movement comes to life in profiles of itsmajor players, a display of "Medical Edibles," and an in-depth interview with singer Melissa Etheridge, who, for the first time, discusses her personal experience using marijuana to combat breastcancer.

POT CULTURE also chronicles marijuana prohibition from the 1930s to present times, identifying activists and iconic figures in the cannabis legalization and counterculture communities with biographicalsketches throughout the book. Guaranteed to keep you flipping from page to page for hours, it's the perfect gift for the college student, the baby boomer, and anyone with an eye to contemporary society. But most important, POT CULTURE is a must-have for any self-respecting stoner.

I don't know...based on what I've read I'm guessing that Mr. McConaughey is a very seasoned stoner!
