It seems like every other day there’s new good news for fans of recreational marijuana use. States like Massachusetts for instance, have made it legal to recreationally smoke weed, toke up, and hit the bong (is that what they say?). Today, a new comic book success story in the quest to make weed legal has been started by writer Justin Eisinger and illustrator Cryssy Cheung. The graphic novel Grow Some Pot!: An Illustrated Guide to Growing Your Own Supply gives readers a simple and easy to follow guide on how to get started growing your own crop of cannabis plants.

“I couldn’t be more excited to bring this project to life,” said Eisinger. “From the moment I realized we could use sequential storytelling to simplify this process, getting it made and into readers’ hands has almost been an obsession.”
