Time travel through a colorful haze of smoke and you will almost catch a contact high in this funny, witty, and at times terrifying account of a weed smoker who shares his adventures in this riveting narrative. The Blunt Chronicles journeys through three decades of blowing down, blazing up, inhaling, holding, and exhaling as a boy becomes a man in an epic diary of his highest times.
The Blunt Chronicles is a multi-snapshot diary in the life and high times of a young man as he graduates high school, goes off to an Ivy league college and experiences the psychedelic effects of the magical green herb. We follow his ups and downs as a scholar-athlete, engage in his highs and lows as a new stoner, and hold in the anxious smoke during the dangerous situations the author encounters. The storyline continues, as the young man decides against giving up rolling joints to work in law enforcement, but instead goes on to become a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala, Central America, where he becomes a bilingual pothead. His days and nights intensify in a world much different than the urban streets on which he grew up. Returning to the United States, no longer having unlimited access to inexpensive sticky-icky, the chronicles continue as the author begins to lead a double life, balancing a full-time job, a family, and new responsibilities with his ever present love for ganga. There is never a dull moment, as The Blunt Chronicles blends romance, comedy, risky business, and euphoria, hitting and holding readers in a trance, inhaling and exhaling the bong smoke of life.
