Twenty-six states in the U.S., Washington, D.C., and the entire nation of Canada have decriminalized or legalized marijuana use, and more are joining the policy shift every year! Dispensaries are popping up everywhere, and experienced users are openly rejoicing—but where does that leave the marijuana newbie, discouraged by years of "Just Say No" disinformation, but curious about what they’ve missed?

Written by experienced, conscientious users and presented in an easy-to-read comic book format, How Do You Smoke a Weed? fills that knowledge gap, covering everything from weed history to strains, couch-locks to body highs, and tulips to spliff etiquette. Perfect for the cannabis-curious, and with new insights for even the veteran smoker.

Authors Lin Visel and Joseph Bergin III, working together as the dynamic comics duo OWLIN, have lived in the Pacific Northwest and enjoyed legal weed for years. Grab a copy of How Do You Smoke a Weed? here on Kickstarter to partake of their insight, and help this awesomely educational ebook see print!

How Do You Smoke a Weed? is 88 pages long, and gloriously full-color, packed with tons of practical know-how, advice, and definitions. When legal weed finally comes to your neck of the woods, be ready and waiting!
