High Times is a New York-based monthly magazine founded in 1974 by Tom Forcade. The publication is devoted to, and advocates the legalization of, cannabis. It is the largest cannabis-related magazine in the world.

Tom Forcade came roaring out of the Arizona desert to become the most overlooked figure in the history of the American counterculture. He founded High Times while becoming one of the biggest pot dealers of his time.
