Andrew Loog Oldham

'People say I made the Stones. I didn't. They were there already. They only wanted exploiting. They were all bad boys when I found them. I just brought out the worst in them.' Andrew Loog Oldham was nineteen years old when he discovered and became the manager and producer of an unknown band called The Rolling Stones. His radical vision transformed them from a starving south London blues combo to the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band That Ever Drew Breath, while the revolutionary strategies he used to get them there provoked both adulation and revulsion throughout British society and beyond. An ultra-hip mod, flash, brash and schooled in style by Mary Quant, he was a hustler of genius, addicted to scandal, notoriety and innovation.

Aja Raden

As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious. What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire. What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, Stoned breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace. Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, Stoned tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.

James W. Forsythe MD Hmd

Imagine being ill and in extreme pain, as many of your friends or relatives insist that you try medical marijuana. Naturally, at that point you might wonder: "Is this quackery, or perhaps even worse just a lame excuse to get stoned? Can this drug truly help me?" Well, finally for the first time here, internationally acclaimed physician James W. Forsythe cracks the issue wide open. For many years, this world-famous integrative medical oncologist has had streams of patients urge him to publicly reveal the truth about medical marijuana and hemp oil. In "Stoned The Truth About Medical Marijuana and Hemp Oil," you will learn of: the possible dangers of using cannabis; the specific medical conditions that this controversial drug might effectively treat; whether claims that hemp oil has an astronomical cure rate are correct; the best ways to take marijuana for your specific ailment; specifics on dozens of marijuana strains and how each effects your body; and much more. "People deserve the truth here from a seasoned doctor who has already earned worldwide respect not just a local physician trying to gain notoriety from this controversial issue," Doctor Forsythe says. "The risks are far too great for you to fail to get the unique, timely and useful information that I provide."

David Casarett M.D.

A doctor discovers the surprising truth about marijuana No substance on earth is as hotly debated as marijuana. Opponents claim it’s dangerous, addictive, carcinogenic, and a gateway to serious drug abuse. Fans claim it as a wonder drug, treating cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, glaucoma, arthritis, migraines, PTSD, and insomnia. Patients suffering from these conditions need—and deserve—hard facts based on medical evidence, not hysteria and superstition. In Stoned, palliative care physician Dr. David Casarett sets out to do anything—including experimenting on himself—to find evidence of marijuana’s medical potential. He smears mysterious marijuana paste on his legs and samples pot wine. He poses as a patient at a seedy California clinic and takes lessons from an artisanal hash maker. In conversations with researchers, doctors, and patients around the world he learns how marijuana works—and doesn’t—in the real world. Dr. Casarett unearths tales of near-miraculous success, such as a child with chronic seizures who finally found relief in cannabidiol oil. In Tel Aviv, he learns of a nursing home that’s found success giving marijuana to dementia patients. On the other hand, one patient who believed marijuana cured her lung cancer has clearly been misled. As Casarett sifts the myth and misinformation from the scientific evidence, he explains, among other things: • Why marijuana might be the best treatment option for some types of pain • Why there’s no significant risk of lung damage from smoking pot • Why most marijuana-infused beer or wine won’t get you high Often humorous, occasionally heartbreaking, and full of counterintuitive conclusions, Stoned offers a compassionate and much-needed medical practitioner’s perspective on the potential of this misunderstood plant. From the Hardcover edition.

Morton Carter

Chances are you don’t remember what you said when you were high, which is a shame, because it was probably incredibly deep and enlightening (or possibly dumb and incriminating, but we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt). Fortunately, the guy sitting in the corner was scribbling your brilliant words on napkins and texting them to Morton Carter for posterity: “You have friends in high places. I just have high friends.” “Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?” “Make me unweird.” “Violence is never the answer, man. Unless the question is ‘what is never the answer?’” “You know what would make a great book, man? The history of tits.” “There’s no fake monkey teeth. I looked that up, too.” “No matter how long you live, you’re dead a lot longer.” In the spirit of Things Drunk People Say, the stumbling, intriguing, nonsensical but hilarious words are enhanced with creative, original art and published for the world to see (don’t worry, the quotes are listed anonymously). You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder why the hell you’re ever sober when you’re clearly much more interesting when you’re stoned. Why didn’t anyone think of this before?

Mike Sager

ÒIn Stoned Again, Mike Sager refers to himself as a Ôdrugs correspondent,Õ but thatÕs legitimately humble smoke that belies whatÕs really going on here. While thereÕs plenty of weed, heroin, shrooms, and crack (not to mention plenty of Ricky James, bitch) in these pages, what is most evident on every page is the remarkable reporting, empathy, craftsmanship, and storytelling that have rightly placed Mike Sager among the journalistic legends of our time.Ó ÑMaximillian Potter, author of Shadows in the Vineyard: The True Story of the Plot to Poison the WorldÕs Greatest Wine From the brutal days and nights of life inside a crack gang in Los Angeles, to the artistic miseries of young heroin addicts on the ultra-hip lower east side of New York; from the Sonoran desert where Carlos Castaneda made his earliest shamanic discoveries, to the cell at Folsom Prison where the author first encountered the King of Funk, Rick James, to the modest headquarters of the Church of Realized Fantasies, where the Pope of Pot presided over the first highly organized marijuana delivery service, Stoned Again: The High Times and Strange Life of a Drugs Correspondent takes you to places you didnÕt necessarily want to go on your own. But with Sager as your guide, you canÕt wait to head to the next destination. Sager has been called Òthe Beat poet of American journalism, that rare reporter who can make literature out of shabby reality.Ó Nowhere is that skill more in evidence than when he writes about the seamier sides of life.

In 1969, Robert Rauschenberg was invited by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to witness the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to place man on the moon for the first time. At the end of a decade in which the war in Vietnam and social turmoil in America had left him disillusioned, this scientific and technological marvel gave the artist new hope for the future. That year, in response to the Apollo 11 achievement, and in collaboration with the Gemini GEL print workshop, Rauschenberg created the Stoned Moon series--the title reflecting both the lithographic medium and the moon mission. This publication includes the full Stoned Moon series of 35 lithographs and discusses them in the context of the Apollo 11 mission as well as Rauschenberg's experimental and groundbreaking printmaking techniques.

J. Maarten Troost

From the bestselling author of The Sex Lives of Cannibals, the laugh-out-loud true story of his years on the islands of Vanuatu and Fiji, among cannibals, volcanoes . . . and the world’s best narcotics. With The Sex Lives of Cannibals, Maarten Troost established himself as one of the most engaging and original travel writers around. Getting Stoned with Savages again reveals his wry wit and infectious joy of discovery in a side-splittingly funny account of life in the farthest reaches of the world. After two grueling years on the island of Tarawa, battling feral dogs, machete-wielding neighbors, and a lack of beer on a daily basis, Maarten Troost was in no hurry to return to the South Pacific. But as time went on, he realized he felt remarkably out of place among the trappings of twenty-first-century America. When he found himself holding down a job—one that might possibly lead to a career—he knew it was time for he and his wife, Sylvia, to repack their bags and set off for parts unknown. Getting Stoned with Savages tells the hilarious story of Troost’s time on Vanuatu—a rugged cluster of islands where the natives gorge themselves on kava and are still known to “eat the man.” Falling into one amusing misadventure after another, Troost struggles against typhoons, earthquakes, and giant centipedes and soon finds himself swept up in the laid-back, clothing-optional lifestyle of the islanders. When Sylvia gets pregnant, they decamp for slightly-more-civilized Fiji, a fallen paradise where the local chiefs can be found watching rugby in the house next door. And as they contend with new parenthood in a country rife with prostitutes and government coups, their son begins to take quite naturally to island living—in complete contrast to his dad.

14 Mind-Altering Substances You Can Obtain and Use Without Breaking The Law "A Euphoric, Crazy Trip."--Amanita muscaria mushroom user Everyone can get high...biologically speaking, that is. And it's just plain human nature to want to try it. Although the government stands in the way of this basic right, there are ways around the restrictions. On the road to altered consciousness, there's a perfectly legal route. With each of the fourteen psychoactive substances detailed in this book, you can get high, pass a urine drug test, and never once break the law. "Totally Clear, Intense Hallucinations For Hours."--Ayahuasca user Legally Stoned provides a clear, practical guide for obtaining and using fourteen of the easiest to acquire, legal mind-altering agents. It also includes a description and history of each item, its chemistry and physiological reactions, accounts of its pleasures and perils, and any risks associated with it. Here are a few legal substances and their reported impact: • Amanita muscaria mushroom use leads to feelings of euphoria and auditory hallucinations • Anadenanthera peregrina/colubrina seeds have been known to cause intense visions of psychedelic light and color • Ayahuasca, which originated in South America, often produces visual hallucinations that include the jungle, exotic animals, even ancient native artwork! "Like Watching A Laser Light Show. . .Next Time I'll Take More."--Colubrina seed user "Fascinating . . . You are not merely holding a book; you are holding a key to the doors of perception. Legally Stoned is far more than an excellent, meticulously-researched sourcebook; it is a highly-readable treasure trove of experiments and experiences." --Kinky Friedman, musician, novelist, and politician "Legally Stoned is a well researched sourcebook for anyone interested in psychoactive substances that are currently legal in the United States. Legally Stoned cites scientific research and personal accounts to provide accurate descriptions of each substance's history, physiological effects, and the risks of use. Legally Stoned also challenges the rationality of the drug laws by describing the methods people often use to obtain and prepare each substance." --Krystle Cole, www.NeuroSoup.com, author of Lysergic and After the Trip "I refuse to plunge into paranoid speculation why many of the magical and sacred foods of the gods are made illegal and their communicants vilified. Instead, I bless and give thanks for books such as this, and intelligent and courageous souls such as Dr. Thies for their efforts to keep the doors of perception in full view for all of us to see." --Lon Milo DuQuette, author of My Life with the Spirits and Enochian Vision Magick "Todd Thies is the new millennium's Timothy Leary.
