Okay, I'm done trying to be a Terry Southern completist. But Red Dirt Marijuana is still in my top 20 best of all time. ( )

One of the funniest novels I have ever read and for my money, one of the best pieces of satire ever committed to print. I'm still amazed that most people still have not heard of this book. ( )
