Mailer on Pot
High Times has posted a classic interview with Mailer conducted by Richard Stratton in 2004, perhaps in anticipation of the upcoming publication of Lipton’s Journal in 2023. Stratton writes:
I’ve smoked pot with Mailer on a number of occasions and have always been impressed with where it took him: to the outermost reaches of the universe and back to the murky depths of the human psyche. But I had never really sat with him and got his thoughts on pot until we met, almost 30 years to the day of that first interview, and I asked him to expound on his views of the plant that became the inspiration for this magazine.
