Rerunning this post from last year. Why not?
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, as I’m sure Doc’s frame of mind was when he read the novel. 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.
