I'm working on creating a character who is a true marijuana connoisseur, who treats the substance the same way some people treat fine wine and cigars. He is a collector, an expert, and very meticulous.
So I'm looking for info on: varieties of marijuana, the history of how the plant and/or the quality has changed over time, distribution in the US, slang, the pros and cons of various ways to use marijuana, the typical American cultural approach to the drug -- from the attitudes of those who indulge, important tools that a true smoker can't live without, "designer" or artistic pipes and so forth.
Yes, I'll pick up a copy of "High Times," but I'd also like book recommendations, documentaries, best websites to mine for info, and any personal expertise you care to share. E-mail is in the profile if you prefer to respond anonymously.
