“Higher Etiquette is incredibly detailed and well thought-out in its description of cannabis social mores and practices, lending the proper credence to a subject that has for too long been hidden or simply thought of as a joke. Cannabis is every bit as important to society as wine or beer and even more complex in terms of its interaction with society and etiquette.”
