A Message from Meta House: Dear Friends! Surfing, smoking, smuggling, selling and going to jail when the West was wild and SE Asia wilder still: Based on interviews with the modern day pirates, the new book THAI STICK: SURFERS, SCAMMERS, AND THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE MARIJUANA TRADE - nominated for the Bancroft Prize and the PEN/ESPN Award - captures the wild aura of the 1970s and 1980s dope trade and the U.S. War on Drugs that tried to stop it. Peter Maguire and Mike Ritter are the first historians to document this underground industry, the only record of its existence rooted in the fading memories of its elusive participants. We invite you to the Cambodian book launch of THAI STICK: SURFERS, SCAMMERS, AND THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE MARIJUANA TRADE on Saturday, 4/01, 8PM @ Meta House. At Meta House, Peter Maguire (a rare mix of Columbia trained academic and Southern California raised surfer), will present this globe-straddling tale, which rolls from Southern California surf shops to the beaches of Baja, from Maui to seedy bars in Thailand and the jungles of Laos, and from communist extermination camps in Cambodia to DEA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Books will be on sale. Free Entrance! Please be our guests, your MH team
