« a poem from The Awl by Josh Bell [posted by Mark Bibbins] | Main | Elizabeth Bishop to Guest-Edit "The Best American Poetry" »

Let's not forget our friend John Ashbery, who loved his weed.

Nor should we overlook Steven Weed, Patricia Hearst's ex-boyfriend, who turned her on to cannabis. -- DL

The best marijuana stocks to buy in 2019
So, where can investors find the best marijuana stocks to buy in 2019? Interestingly, there are just as many in the U.S. as there are in Canada, which is a departure from the Canada-heavy thesis last year. The top marijuana stocks this year just might be CannTrust Holdings (NYSE:CTST), OrganiGram Holdings (NASDAQOTH:OGRMF), KushCo Holdings (NASDAQOTH:KSHB), and Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR). That's right, folks -- under-the-radar small-cap pot stocks could be 2019's top performers.

Thank you for this excellent comment with your buy recommendation in the MJ sector. We'll have to keep an eye on these issues. What's your opinion of Green Thumb? -- DL

It may be said that Poe (whose name straddles Poet and Pot) had this, too, in common with Whitman.

Love "Alien Ginsberg" in this context.

Thank you, Robert. Amazing the transfomation made by the replacement of a single letter! -- DL

left the house
