Top ten lists of all sorts are getting released and we here at NCC will try to keep you apprised of cannabis-related lists so you don’t miss out on any of the important marijuana events of 2012. A lot of historic occurrences went down in 2012, but some important items may have missed your attention as our 24-7 information age bombards us with a massive amount of information. One list just put out is the top marijuana non-fiction books of 2012 by The San Francisco Chronicle.

At the top of the list is Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know. The Chronicle states that, “Parents, educators, law enforcement and politicians – everyone, really – should read ‘Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know’. Assembled by the best policy analysts of our time, yet readable at the 6th grade level.”

Also included on the list is a book that should appeal to the cannabis community as well as music fans as Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road by Willie Nelson should be sure to please. Wille Nelson has become an icon in so many ways to many, many people. Very few activists and musicians can appeal to people across genres and generations, but Willie certainly pulls it off. ”A tour diary from outlaw country music legend Willie Nelson is heavy on jokes, tokes, and wisdom. With a foreword by Kinky Friedman,” states The San Francisco Chronicle. I will definitely be checking this book out myself and I have a couple of cannabis and music aficionados I know that just may be getting this book as a gift.
