Tarris Batiste does a good job of making his book, “Don’t Let It Smoke You: How to Create a Nontoxic Relationship with Cannabis,” a breeze to read.
At the beginning, the author sets us up with a couple of descriptive life scenarios he had to overcome during 7th grade. That helps us visually see him as a person and all that he will start to encounter throughout the book.
He divulges his desires to fit in and his insecurities about joining a certain, older friend group he wanted to be a part of.
This was how he was first introduced to cannabis.
