This is an exploration of California's cannabis culture. It's the story of the people fighting for it, the people fighting against it, the people selling it, the people making it less taboo, and the people who were around when the whole scene started. In November 2010, Californians will be voting on whether or not to legalize marijuana for recreational use. If passed, California will become the first US state to end marijuana prohibition.

As a Thai journalist, I felt an urgent need to inform the public, both in Thailand and abroad, of the real situation threatening the Thai Asian elephant. I strongly hope that Behind the Siamese Smile will help generate a better public understanding and awareness of these animals' plight, while encouraging more efforts to protect them from distress they do not deserve. Asian elephants are the national symbol of Thailand. Over the past two decades, however, they have been endangered by Thailand's commercial tourism. At present, thousands of domesticated elephants in Thailand are increasingly subject to overwork, abuse and injuries. Worse, the problem continues in a vicious circle mainly because the Thai government does not make enough effort to improve the situation.
