About
In the 1970s, when cannabis was as illicit as heroin, Alia Volz's mother ran Sticky Fingers Brownies, a pioneering underground bakery that delivered ten thousand marijuana edibles per month to a city in the throes of change--from the joyous upheavals of gay liberation to the tragedy of the Peoples Temple. Dressed in elaborate costumes, Alia's parents hid in plain sight, parading through the city's circus-like atmosphere with the goods tucked into her stroller. When HIV/AIDS swept San Francisco in the 1980s, Alia's mom turned from dealer into healer, providing soothing edibles to those fighting for their lives at the dawn of medical marijuana.

By turns heartbreaking, exhilarating, and laugh-out-loud funny, Home Baked celebrates an eccentric and remarkable extended family, taking us through love, loss, and finding home.
