Little 5 Points carries a reputation. It's cool, hip, beautifully bizarre-- a mecca of creative consumerism and activism as well, being home to the natural foods co-op Sevananda, the feminist book store Charis and even Atlanta's own awareness-raising Pot Shop.

Thank you, NORML Dad. As the saying goes, knowledge is power. Also, images speak.
I love you, man.
