Pioneers of Leisure

Experience the wild and unforgettable journey of Marcello, a young boy who started polishing shoes and ended up building a drug empire in Denver. In the memoir Pioneers of Leisure, Marcello Cabus and Nicholas Werle take you on a trip down memory lane, back to the 1960s and the revolution of culture. With honesty and vividness, Marcello’s life story unfolds. From his initial exposure to marijuana to becoming a well-known drug dealer, he achieved tremendous success in everything he reached for. However, his life was not without its downfalls and struggles. The authors delve into his battle with addiction and the toll it took on his life and the people he loved.

Pioneers of Leisure is not just a tale of drugs and addiction but of adventure and traveling. Marcello also shares his love for skiing, being a DJ in Boulder, and opening a boutique that made clothes for the music industry’s big names. As you read on, you will be immersed in his experiences attending and hosting parties for legendary musicians like Rolling Stones, Cheech and Chong, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, and many more. Readers are taken on the thrilling and adrenaline-pumping journey as Marcello travels through Europe, selling LSD while living life to the fullest. We also get an inside look as Marcello learns the art of smuggling in Kashmir while risking his life. But amidst all of this, Marcello’s desire to alleviate world hunger led him to create and patent a dehydrator, a well-intentioned project that took up over 10 years of his life. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, Marcello was slandered and wrongly accused, leading to a court-ordered rehab program, which was considered the toughest in the country.

Marcello’s story is one of immense strength, love, and adventure, peppered with failures and tragedies. It’s a breathtaking read that will leave you feeling inspired. Pioneers of Leisure is an endless adventure that explores the metamorphosis of hipsters to hippies, with Marcello’s story being an integral part of that cultural shift. Whether you’re a fan of memoirs or not, this book is a must-read that will take you on an unforgettable ride.
