Mary Please comes sealed inside a plastic bag containing bits of ersatz marijuana, a gesture that eschews the euphemisms and veiled references traditionally used when making art about drugs. Printed on hemp paper with the title burned into its cover, the book is an unapologetic celebration of pot-smoking, with photographs depicting Silverstein’s friends getting high alongside piles of weed, pipes, bongs, lighters, and other paraphernalia.
