Cannabis Chassidis the Ancient and Emerging Torah of Drugs

"CannabisChassidis: The Ancient and Emerging Torah of Drugs (A memoir)
details the question and it's exploration: How could it be that
something as inherent to modern life as Marijuana, something with a
rich history of human usage, has no tradition in Torah, a guidance
system that I was raised to understand as encompassing everything good
that one should know? There are answers for what IS there in the
tradition, rich allusions to herbs and smokes used in different
capacities, and the more interesting answers and questions are about
what there isn't in the tradition, and why.
And along the way, the spectrum of an experience of living mystical
subculture is explored, and the romantic idealization and redemptive
potential of both Psychedelia and Religion are touched and felt
deeply, in the context of outstanding communities and individuals who
have experienced the glories and the failures of both."
