BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – August 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — 9021GROW is sure to be one of the most controversial publications of 2005. CraigX has worked with Star magazine and written for High Times magazine and this book, 9021GROW (ISBN-0-9747110-0-4) is a combination of the two genres with a prophetic message. As the owner of America’s premier hemp store, 2000B.C., CraigX was arrested standing up for his Free Speech rights. He went to court with attorney, Eric Shevin, and won the right to call a water pipe a “bong.”

Shevin says in the “Foreword” of 9021GROW: “We are lucky that CraigX and those like him are not afraid to speak out against the incredibly unfair marijuana laws in our country, which seek to demonize this herb.”
In 9021GROW, CraigX explains how to end the drug war and generate billions of dollars for our economy without destroying the American way of life. The story is an autobiography of Craig X’s life as a Beverly Hills proponent of marijuana. 9021GROW features interesting stories regarding CraigX’s relationships with some of Hollywood’s most famous stars.
This book is a call to the “420 Nation” to create global change. In it CraigX explains “Peak Oil” and elucidates a hemp solution. He expounds the Christian and Native American prophecy of an “herb of understanding” that will be for the “Healing of all Nations.”
In a style similar to that of American Beat icon, Jack Kerouac, CraigX writes from his soul humorous anecdotes from his early days as “Hollywood’s Wizard of Weed.”
CraigX speaks authoritatively about the hemp plant’s Native America connection. He has presented the economic hemp solution to a Lakota Tribal Council. He has encouraged other tribal leaders to follow President Bush’s advice about being sovereign and treated as sovereign nations.
In one adventure he takes the reader to the bottom of the Grand Canyon which has a special relation with the Havasupai Nation (the only place where the U.S. mail is still delivered by horseback). As a result of this close relationship with traditional tribal leaders CraigX has been one of the few outsiders to participate in Havasupai rituals and he has an intimate knowledge of their culture and prophecy that he shares with readers.
