OK, ladies and gentlemen, you're about to read OfficeHour's commemorative first-but-maybe-not-last pot entry.

Now that Washington has legalized indoor smoking of marijuana, we just had to find something to add to the discussion.

Here it is:  A classic Penguin paperback book, The Strange Case of Pot, published in 1969 and written by Michael Schofield.

It was one of the earliest serious attempts to argue in favor of legalization.  The geometric cover was designed by by Germano Facetti.

We found the cover and several other very choice Penguin cover designs from the Guardian. Click to view.
