“Alia Volz was raised by parents who made their living selling weed. Her mother, Meridy, was the heart behind Sticky Fingers — an illegal Bay Area brownie operation that for decades brought joy and vital medicine to patients, especially those suffering from AIDS, at a time when all other shoulders were turned away. When we talk about medical marijuana, we’re talking about the legacy of people like Meridy Volz, who Alia beautifully captures in her memoir of a most strange upbringing.”
