Ever wanted to visit Australia - read 'Dopeland' first he,he (1 Viewer)

F

Fallen Angel

Halfway through this book called Dopeland by John Birmingham who wrote 'He Died With A Felafel In His Hand.'
Basically John's publisher called him in and wanted to do an 'expose' on marijuana smoking in Australia. So they threw a shitload of cash at him and said 'we want you to travel around Australia and smoke marijuana and write about it,' which after the contract was signed he was forced to do. They even had a clause in the contract stating that they would be responsible for legal fees and bail if he was to get caught.

That said it is a very funny book which I recommend for those who use, those who use to use and those who don't touch the stuff.
Check it out...
