Hempology 101 Book Release

Local pot activist Ted Smith launches Hempology 101 textbook.

Pot activist Ted Smith is launching his Hempology 101 textbook Tues., July 17 at Sacred Herb (106-561 Johnson).

 

 

For the past 17 years, pot activist Ted Smith has been spreading the good word about the good herb and now he’s compiled his years of knowledge into the first ever textbook of its kind; Hempology 101: The History and Uses of Cannibis Sativa.

Fittingly, Smith also offers a weekly, not-for-credit lecture series at UVic about the history and use of hemp for the Hempology 101 club, the largest student group on campus.

The book offers comprehensive coverage of marijuana’s history, its uses, both industrial and medicinal, prohibition and the counter-culutre revivial. Smith also talks about cannabis today and its role in our future.

The book is layed-out textbook style with illustrations by Sarita Mielke. It’s an interesting read for activists, veteran users and those just wondering about weed.

Join Smith for the Hempology 101 book launch, Tues., July 17 from noon until 2 p.m. at Sacred Herb (106-561 Johnson). Free.
