There's a few references to Petey Greene in the text, one in particular which stood out was in the section entitled "Before the Drug War" (DC Gazette, Nov 22 1970). excerpt:

'[Activist Petey] Greene "testified" on behalf of his grandmother, whose opinions on marijuana are based on practical experience. She once told her grandson to quit: "Petey, you gotta stop smoking those reefers because they make you too hungry, and I can't buy all that extra food. Later, on comparing its effects with those of alcohol, "She said she'd rather me smoke reefers and just sit and smile at people than drink that old wine and come in throwing chairs around. "'
