Sit down, child. Let me tell you a story...

And now from the other side of the aisle: It's Just a Plant--a (loooong) picture book about marijuana. Here's the scoop: "It follows the journey of a young girl as she learns about the plant from a diverse cast of characters including her parents, a local farmer, a doctor, and a police officer."

You can read much of the book at its website. (Link via Boing Boing; Image from the It's Just a Plant website.)

Once Upon a Time, writers wrote stories for children...*

*Just kidding. I know children have listened to pedagogy and propaganda in the guise of story for eons.
