Pot Brownies Have An Incredible Origin Story
Weed-infused edibles date back more than a thousand years, but did you ever wonder how the humble "pot brownie" become a cultural icon? It's a wilder and more fascinating story than you probably imagine, one that starts in Egypt in 1799 and ends with the publication of the most controversial cookbook of all time (except for maybe How to Serve Man) And at the center of it all is an iconic lesbian power couple who claimed they got duped ("doped?") into educating most of the world on how to get high off dessert. So get ready for an incredible intercontinental and cross-cultural tale of culinary adventure that involves Moroccan hashish makers, an avant-garde artist, a literary scandal, an elaborate weed prank and a high-larious Peter Sellers movie. Check out the original Alice B. Toklas Cookbook! Watch the movie I Love You Alice B. Toklas. Learn more about this incredible couple with the book Two Lives: Gertrude and Alice. Then check out clips from Laverne and Shirley, Taxi, Frazier, That 70s Show, Desperate Housewives, Mr. Show and other very special TV episodes that celebrate the weed brownie.
