RESOURCES other than my own
The Great Marijuana Hoax by Allen Ginsberg
Allen Ginsberg's generation's first manifesto advocating the legalization of cannabis. Published in 1966, this Poet on Pot was 50 years ahead of his time.
I disclaim any ownership of copyright, but provide this 400K PDF solely as a public service to disseminate Ginsberg's prophecy about cannabis.
Growing Marijuana in New England by Peter Oakum
Authorship of this 44-page booklet is shrouded in mystery because it was published in 1977 during the deep freeze of the War on (Some) Drugs. Peter Oakum is a pseudonym. It is assumed he is sadly now deceased, else he would have divulged his identity during our liberation from prohibition. I disclaim ownership of copyright, but provide this 6MB PDF solely as a public service to disseminate the author's expertise in growing cannabis outdoors in cold climates.
