As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious. What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire. What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, Stoned breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace. Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, Stoned tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.

A physician’s exploration of the odd science of marijuana, and the industry that’s sprung up around it. If you’re diagnosed with a serious illness today, there’s one thing you can look forward to: the ability to get stoned on legal, pharmaceutical-grade marijuana. The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in medical marijuana use, abetted by a new industry of farmers, distributors, manufacturers, and clinics that have created a need. But does pot really offer the medical benefits that its proponents promise? Or does it just make people feel good? Dr. David Casarett, a highly respected researcher and professor of medicine, sets out to find answers firsthand. He visits dispensaries in California and Colorado; smears marijuana paste on his legs while trekking through Nepal; samples pot wine; learns how vaporizers work; and tries the purest kind of hash, known as “shatter.” The result is a light-hearted and much-needed medical practitioner’s perspective on what marijuana is really good for, and whether the dangers outweigh the benefits.

In his first book, Stoned, Oldham recorded his early years and the meeting with the Stones that changed all their fates; 2Stoned is the story of what followed.
