A BAKED COLOURING BOOK
by Love Curly

Hey, after all this April’s 420 postings, let us not forget that we are a serious art publication. Today is the day to unleash your own creativity and let out your inner artist. Together with Love Curly we prepared a printable DIY colouring book for you. It’s like painting Mandalas, but much more fun. You only need one sheet of paper, print out the layout above, fold it two times and your mini booklet is ready to be coloured by yourself. Please don’t hesitate to share your results with us. The spirit is free and so are you.

Outgoing sexuality and teasing clownliness marks the work of Kyiv based artist Love Curly. Speaking of Kyiv: we’re quite sad that we are not able to travel to Ukraine this April for the release of TISSUE N°666FFF. It was supposed to be the last stop on our promotion tour after Tokyo, Amsterdam and Berlin. And you know why? Because Her Clownlyness Love Curly is featured in our latest edition. Still available online here: store.tissuemagazine.com/

AWARENESS, EDUCATION & DISCUSSION
w/ Moms for Marijuana International

The majority of moms tell their children smoking weed will be bad for them and their surroundings – if they talk about the topic at all. If there is conversations, children will be told that one might successively become an addict to (harder) drugs, catch something like reefer madness or just become the stereotypical underachiever associated with lessened ambition. Anybody we know smoking sees themselves in the light of those shadows. Shadows that were cast upon them and their precursors due to hundreds of years of misinformation and campaigning. This definitely has a lot to do with patriachal structures, colonial exploitation and hegemonial power, with economic interest rather than well being.
As a lot of the people demonizing marijuana still use resentment and status quo to argue away their lack of experience and knowledge, it is evermore important to have Moms for Marijuana educating people that Cannabis use does not have to be socially contextualized as deviant or illegal, informing about the advantages of medical as well as procreational use.

Not all moms have a first hand experience they can draw upon, and that is alright. With openness and informational integrity you can still do what is right. Moms for Marijuana campaign ‘to end Cannabis prohibition world-wide by raising awareness, promoting education, and creating discussion in our local communities.’ Educate yourself here: momsformarijuana.com

“WE [THE PEOPLE] DESERVE BETTER”
w/ Spencer Alan Boston

Spencer Alan Boston is the name behind the person who lit a joint infront of a judge at Wilson County courtroom (U.S.A) on January 27 this year. He appeared in court on a marijuana possession charge. “We deserve better” was his statement when he got removed by the sheriff with a second charge of simple possession and received ten days in prison. Boston apologized via his attorney Blake Kelley in February:

“Mr. Boston has willingly taken responsibility, paid his fine, done his time for his traffic violation and his Contempt of Court. He is apologetic to the Honorable Judge Haywood Barry for his peaceful, orderly protest in the Court of which Mr. Barry presides. Mr. Boston will continue to peacefully protest the unjust laws pertaining to a non-lethal medicinal herb.”

He was supposed to reappear in court on April 14. We don’t have any further information yet. Read our colleague Andy Humbles’ article published at tennessean.com/2020/02/12/spencer-boston-apologetic-marijuana-courtroom/

‘THE DIVINE FARMER’
Shennong 神農大帝

Who came first, the Chinese or the herbs? Constant readers of our daily service already know. China plays an important role in the history of hemp. Sure is, ancient Chinese Emperor Shennong (around 2800BC) is the first one to document the use of cannabis as medicine in his so-called Shennong Bencaojing (also The Classic of Herbal Medicine), the earliest extant Chinese pharmacopoeia. The “Divine Farmer” is said to be the father of Chinese agriculture as well as traditional Chinese medicine. He is also believed to be the inventor of acupuncture. This shall also be considered as a recommendation to read this article: tissuemagazine.com/series/they-call-it-cannabusiness/

Über Haschisch
WALTER BENJAMIN
[Suhrkamp, 1972]

Today’s editorial pick is more of a reading recommendation to serve you (just maybe) the inventors of “cannacritique” and modern day trip anecdotes.

Originating between 1927 and 1930, Über Haschisch [eng. On Hashish] by Walter Benjamin and co-authored by Ernst Bloch is a lesser known collection of writings that was only published posthumous. While still alive Benjamin already called it “bedeutsam” [significant] and yes, the book itself makes a profound appearance in any collectors shelf. Being a notorious leftist but also self-proclaimed bourgeois thinker that collected rare books by Der Blaue Reiter, tried to publish a leftist magazine and was associated with Adorno, Arendt and Brecht among many others: he himself wrote in his Illuminations (in the chapter Unpacking My Library) that the urge to write a book often stems from the conviction, that there are no good books one can afford, and that the most praiseworthy method of acquiring a book is to write it yourself.

“Unlimited goodwill. Suspension of the compulsive anxiety complex. The beautiful ‘character’ unfolds. All of those present become comically iridescent. At the same time one is pervaded by their aura.”

With hashish reports ranging from empathetic confessions, hilarious clichés and honestly concerning horror trip to their critique and reflection in the very sense of a stoner review written with integrity, this book will brighten your horizon in any case. Rumor has it Benjamin first brought up concepts of Aura in this writings and even if not so, it is engaging to read how they were looking at Rohrschach pictures or taking field trips while stoned.

For those who haven’t heard about Walter Benjamin, a jewish, leftist author and critic of the early 20th century, who committed suicide because he was not allowed to pass the border to Spain while he was seeking refuge from Nazi Germany and Ernst Bloch, a marxist philosopher and author who managed to emigrate in the early years of the rise of Nazism, one should always recommend Benjamin’s The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1935), Thesis on the Philosophy of History (1940), and probably Bloch’s writings on concrete utopia and non-simultaneity or non-synchronicity in Spirit of Utopia and Heritage of our Times (1940).
