Episode Info:

High Times founder Tom Forcade's story concludes in part 2, which features a special guest — Rex Weiner — who was there for the magazine's wild early days, and shared many illicit adventures with the weed smuggler/political activist behind it all. 

We discuss how the book Agents of Chaos by Norman Spinrad influenced Tom Forcade towards an embrace of chaos as the true third rail in American politics.

Rex recalls High Times' glory years including cover stories on Bob Marley, Hunter Thompson, Debby Harry, The Sex Pistols, Cheech and Chong, and other cannabis celebrities.

And we hear about the time Tom and Rex stowed away on a luxury cruise to watch a rocket launch!

High Times magazine changed the world, and if you love weed, you should know this incredible unsung story.
