An Important Update For Our Customers

Greetings Dear Readers, With all of the uncertainty surrounding the spread of Covid-19, we wanted to update you on a few changes we’re making here at Longfellow Books. As always, our primary concern is the safety of our staff and our community. First, a few things we are doing immediately for the safety of our staff and customers:

1) Sanitizing common surfaces: We are currently sanitizing all phones, keyboards, registers, doorknobs, etc at least twice a day and generally more often than that.

2) Sanitizing ourselves — All staff are encouraged to wash their hands or use sanitizer consistently throughout their shifts. We have a solid stockpile of hand sanitizer and gloves that are readily accessible to staff in all work areas.

3) Encouraging anyone that feels ill to stay home.

Second — we understand that there are some of you right now and maybe more as the weeks go on, that may feel uncomfortable coming into downtown Portland at this time — for books or multiple other needs. To that end, we are eliminating all shipping fees immediately if requested. Our normal shipping fees are $6 for the first book and $1 for each additional book. However, for the time being, that fee will be waived if you feel that the financial hardship of shipping costs would prevent you from ordering books from us. Our goal is to ensure that you can still get the books you want from your local bookstore whenever you need them. As a reminder, if you call us before 11 AM we can get most books delivered to the store within 2-3 business days. We would then need to ship them to you, but we are more than happy to do so.

The shipping fee will be waived as a default, but if you feel you are financially able to help with the cost of shipping, please let us know as that will help support this overall effort of ensuring the communities’ needs are met.

NOTE: This does not apply to any rush shipping — unfortunately we will need to continue charging for those. As always, we are all in this together. So we’ll sign off with a slightly different message this time…

In Books. and In Each Other. We Trust, Ari, Meg, Matt, Sarah, & Lucinda

In places like Seattle, Denver or Los Angeles, buying weed is as easy as walking into a store and browsing for buds. What was once relegated to sketchy transactions with a friends’ friends’ friend has become as easy and elegant as consulting a budtender.

With more and more states legalizing the casual consumption of marijuana, and more and more people consuming pot products for the first time, we decided to roundup some of the best books about weed we could find. These books cover everything from marijuana’s road to decriminalization to amazing recipes that also happen to include cannabis, and even a book of Action Bronson’s random, stoned musings on his favorite flower.

Here are eight of our favorite books on weed for the veteran and casual consumer, alike.

1. Grass Roots: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Marijuana in America

In her debut book, historian Emily Dufton traces the history of Marijuana in America. Though it may seem like time to celebrate from those in the pro-pot camp, don’t spark up those celebratory pre-rolls just yet. Even though more states have legalized recreational use of marijuana, history suggests the war is far from over. According to Dufton’s research, a similar situation happened in the 1970s (pugnacious pro-pot protesters fought against prohibition), only for it all to come crashing down shortly thereafter. Grass Roots tells the tale of America’s roller coaster relationship with weed and comments on the wider state of US drug laws along the way.
