THE HOWARD MARKS BOOK OF DOPE STORIES will take you on an electrifying journey through the discovery, consumption, and trade of mind-altering substances.

Since the stone age, drugs have been sniffed to induce sleep, mixed to cure ills, swallowed to stimulate creativity, snorted to increase sexuality, popped for the hell of it and smoked to see God.

Natural or synthesized, they have been smuggled for all kinds of reasons from saving the world to becoming stinking rich, blamed for deaths, wars and suicides, they have also been praised for opening minds and expanding consciousness.

Worshipped and demonised, force-fed and forbidden, every society has had its intoxicant, be it sacrament or scourge.

They have also become irreversibly interwoven with politics, sex, business, religion, and rock and roll, providing writers, whether emerging from the ancient classical world or the street laboratory of today, with both inspiration and challenge.

An unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime trip, THE HOWARD MARKS BOOK OF DOPE STORIES includes his favourite drug writings from Alexander Dumas to Aleister Crowley via Hunter S. Thompson and Charles Baudelaire, as well as unpublished works and many new and compelling pieces from Mr Nice himself.
