The history of the marijuana movement is filled with great characters – daredevils, risk-takers and kids who grew green thumbs and learned how to grow; as well as martyrs who went to prison for freeing the weed. These are some of their stories.
Ganja Tales: Author revives and expands his marijuana classic from 2000, for the cannabis culture today. There's little comedy in these twelve dramatic short stories that everyone can relate to.

About the Author
After a stint as the city hall reporter for the Longview (Texas) News-Journal, he returned to college for his English master's degree and spent the next twenty years teaching every writing course the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Metropolitan Community College offered. He also taught UNO's Managerial Communications courses, and was additionally a corporate trainer for Omaha's largest employer, delivering its Effective Business Writing course.
Pugh began writing a series of stories, all united by the presence of cannabis, in the late nineties. Ganja Tales -- nine marijuana short stories published in 2000 -- was the result. In 2019 he wrote three more marijuana stories and added them to the volume for a total of a dozen stories, which he reissued as a second edition. Ganja Tales remains the only serious literary 420 fiction available today.
He has also written three marijuana screenplays: a drama and two comedies. The drama is Ganja Tales, a story of sibling love and marijuana freedom; the first comedy is Southern Bud, where Blazing Saddles meets Gone with the Wind; the second comedy is The Osipenko File, the story of an anti-marijuana Bolshevik hottie who ends up leading the 420 Army against Moscow in 1937 and killing Stalin.
A tireless advocate of marijuana and personal freedom, Pugh began smoking cannabis in 1970.
