About ParadiseBurning.com

Paradise Burning celebrates the outlaw spirit in art and life. We champion gonzo journalism, non-corporate marijuana and psychedelic culture, drug war reporting, and visionary fiction. We are interested in the stories of smugglers, pirates, rebels,  Robin Hoods, rock 'n' rollers, and outsiders searching for a pot of gold at the end of the rope.


The site is edited by Chris Simunek, former editor in chief of High Times magazine and author of Paradise Burning: Adventures of a High Times Journalist. He lives in New York City.


If you have a story to tell, we are interested in hearing from you. Please read about our Outlaw Marijuana Oral History Project.
