The Seattle Weekly employs a columnist who reviews marijuana dispensaries. That's the first surprising thing in this strange tale of Chinese censorship. That columnist, Steve Elliott, has a book coming out called The Little Black Book of Marijuana, which was supposed to launch on Aug. 1. But the launch has been pushed back to Sept. 15 because the Chinese printing house with which his publisher contracted has reportedly been told not to print it. In fact, the Chinese government won't allow the book to be printed anywhere on the mainland, Elliott wrote in his blog, Toke of the Town.
