We have all heard rumors of the lush fields of green stretched across Northern California. No, not palm trees. I'm talking about marijuana. Non-fiction author, Mathew Gavin Frank can verify these rumors. He spent a season working as a picker on a medical marijuana farm in California. In his book, Pot Farm, Frank shows us this world. In this interview, we get a sneak peak into his research methods, the current marijuana legislation, and a glimpse into Franks personal life. We hear about his mother's battle with cancer, his family's "hedonistic" love of food, and his struggle to refresh his love and marriage. Frank's book is rich with themes, no matter how stoned he was when it took place.
