Grow Your Own

Tin House Staff

Seeing that it’s April 20th, we thought we’d celebrate with a preview of Grow Your Own, our forthcoming guide to understanding, cultivating, and enjoying cannabis. The book is a practical (and handsome) guide to the cannabis plant itself, the subtleties of how to raise it, and the myriad ways of putting it to good use. We’re excited about the future, but we thought we’d start with a good sepia-toned, psychedelic-tinged flashback sequence. On this 4/20, it seemed appropriate to offer a brief history of cannabis—its use, its legislative battles, and the culture around it. (Grow Your Own, by Nichole Graf, Micah Sherman, David Stein, and Liz Crain, will be published 9/26/17)
