April 20 (4/20) is weed day. The day got its name in the 1970s in California when a group of high school students met after school around 4:20 to get high and 4/20 became a code phrase they could use in front of their parents. Its reputation spread from there.
420 Magazine, founded in 1993, has a mission around creating cannabis awareness. I hadn’t heard of the magazine until its editor contacted me to say they wanted to review my novel STASH.
The headline read: “420 Product Review: STASH by David Klein.” As if my novel were any other product they might review, such as a new vaping pen, or shatter, or strain of flower. I thought that was pretty cool. People buy products.
The review, written by Doc Bud (yup), was overwhelmingly positive. Here’s the money quote I love:
Sex, money, power, fear, regret, booze, weed, greed and politics all come together, along with an intricate, yet fully believable story line to create an absolutely fantastic read.
Thanks to 420 Magazine. And happy 4/20.
