"Grass: the Paged Experience"  accompanies "Grass, the Movie," the 
2000 award-winning documentary film by Ron Mann. Through vast 
archival imagery, new graphics by Paul Mavrides, and Mann's text, the 
book navigates through the history of marijuana prohibition in the 
US, focussing both on the legislative and extra-legal machinations 
developed and also on the popular media manipulations employed to 
legitimize these restrictions.

The book also includes essays by critic Jonathan Rosenbaum on pot and 
film, Dr. John Morgan on pot and music, and Keith Stroup of NORML on 
the past and present politics of pot, and is introduced by 
actor/activist Woody Harrelson. The book is in full color (even the 
text pages!), and reproduces the feeling of the film quite well. If 
you saw the film and wanted to see it again, or more likely, if you 
enjoy marijuana but wonder why the film never made it to your local 
corporate moviehouse, you're sure to enjoy this wonderful book.

http://www.autonomedia.org/grass is our web page featuring the book.
http://www.grassthemovie.com is a Flash-heavy site promoting the film.
