For decades, middle-class marijuana use has been America's best kept secret. That ends with the tales in this collection of pot use testimonials, from top executives to responsible parents, from entrepreneurs to A-students, from unwinding suburbanites to the very sick. In more than 120 personal stories, it demolishes every hoary "stoner" stereotype of the regular pot-user.

The Cannabis Closet emerged as a reader thread on the Daily Dish, the ten-year-old popular blog edited by the Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan. It began with one reader email in March 2009 and became one of the most talked-about cultural discussions on the question of marijuana legalization. This collection, edited by Daily Dish executive editor, Chris Bodenner, is a riveting narrative of how deep the secrecy and normalcy of marijuana runs in mainstream America.

Reading its rich, joyful, painful and complex tapestry of human tales and confessions, it is hard to see how America's cannabis closet can survive much longer.

Are you still accepting stories? I have one about a member of my family and marijuana psychosis.

We're still waiting to see if the mental illness will be a permanent. Given our flawed mental health system, it's pretty challenging to sort all of this out.

Yes, this aspect of marijuana use is becoming more mainstream also....

Seriously?! How can I buy a book that incorrectly capitalizes Of and The on the FRONT COVER! And why is there a PERIOD at the end of the TITLE?!?!? ugh! "The Dish" is notoriously bad about incorrectly capitalizing the headings of their posts. It makes me want to scream!
