It’s Just A Plant: A Children’s Book About Marijuana

Many of us Greenies have kids of our own or little brothers and sisters, and probably have had (or will have) the opportunity to explain to them why we smoke weed, why it isn’t harmful or dangerous, and to make sure they fully understand it’s a plant like any other on your garden. So it was a very pleasant surprise to run into this book.

It’s Just a Plant is an illustrated children’s book about marijuana. It follows the journey of a young girl as she learns about the plant from a diverse cast of characters including her parents, a local farmer, a doctor, and a police officer.

The book is written and illustrated by Ricardo Cortes, you can see for yourself what is it about by checking out a preview on the book’s website or even order it online.

Would you be open to explain to your kids that you smoke marihuana and why you do it?

  1. I’ve been interested to see that book in person for awhile now. Ricardo Cortes has appeared on several talk shows to discuss his book and the pros/cons of its message to children. From what I’ve seen of him on television, Cortes handles himself very well.

    I’m curious what about other obscure marijuana books are out there utilizing this type of niche approach? Have you heard of any?
