Etiquette has to change with the times; social behaviors that were standard even one generation ago may be totally inappropriate nowadays. And so it was that Lizzie Post, the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, was encouraged by her family to create etiquette guidelines for a cannabis-tolerant society. As she notes in an introductory chapter:
"In Oregon, I watched as a friend tossed a half-smoked joint that had gone out into the garbage. "What are you doing?" I shrieked. "I'm so sorry," he said. "I just figured we'd roll another." I had to laugh... Many folks who live legal liken offering saved bowls and roaches (the ends of blunts, spliffs, and joints) to offering someone half a can of beer, the rest of their cocktail, or their leftover food."I grew up in the "prohibition" era, so for me there was a lot of useful information in the book. Inserted below are screencaps of some sample pages:
There are sections on edibles and drinkables, and of course how to be a considerate guest (or a host) of a party, what to expect at a dispensary, how to behave at a cannabis-friendly bed-and-breakfast (a "bud-and-breakfast"), or at a "lit on lit" book club, or on a "weedcation."
I found the book in our local library system (and Wisconsin is not a 420-friendly state) (yet...)
