Great Great Granddaughter of Emily Post Writes Guide to Polite Pot Use
Etiquette is in Lizzie Post’s genes. Her great great grandmother Emily Post literally wrote the book on manners, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home, published in 1922. So when Lizzie talks, the world listens.
The 36-year-old also describes herself as a “classic stoner.” Whether great great granny would have approved is an open question, but Lizzie is still honoring the family name and legacy.
Combining her love of weed and affinity for grace, Lizzie — now co-president of the Emily Post Institute — has authored the definitive guide to smoking pot politely. It’s entitled Higher Etiqutte: A Guide to the World of Cannabis, from Dispensaries to Dinner Parties.
Here’s the description:
Emily Post has gone to pot.
As we enter the dawn of a new "post-prohibition" era, the stigma surrounding cannabis use is fading, and the conversation about what it means to get high is changing. When it comes to being a respectful, thoughtful, and responsible consumer of pot, there is a lot you need to know. In Higher Etiquette, Lizzie Post--great-great granddaughter of Emily Post and co-president of America's most respected etiquette brand--explores and celebrates the wide world of legalized weed. Combining cannabis culture's long-established norms with the Emily Post Institute's tried-and-true principles, this book covers the social issues surrounding pot today, such as:
* How to bring it to a dinner party or give it as a gift
* Why eating it is different from inhaling it
* How to respectfully use it as a guest
* Why different strains affect you in different ways
* How to be behave at a dispensary
* How to tackle pot faux pas such as "canoed" joints and "lawn-mowed" bowls
This handy guide also provides a primer on the diverse array of cannabis products and methods of use, illuminating the many convenient and accessible options available to everyone from experienced users to newbies and the canna-curious. Informative, charming, and stylishly illustrated, this buzzworthy book will make the ultimate lit addition to your stash.
Lizzie has said she couldn’t have written this book even just a few years ago. The spread of cannabis legalization across the U.S. has finally introduced pot use into polite society. Now, it's Lizzie's mission to make sure we keep it polite.
