Powell's on Hawthorne

Weed has long been a way of life for more people than your stoner roommate. For nearly 40 years, a small community in northern California’s Humboldt County subsisted almost entirely on the cultivation and sale of marijuana. Journalist Emily Brady spent a year living among the residents to learn more about their secretive lives—lives that are being turned upside down by the increasing legalization of the plant—for her new book, Humboldt: Life on America’s Marijuana Frontier.
