5.0 von 5 Sternen Useful and Informative 27. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I found this book to be very informative compared to other texts on the subject matter. It opens the forum for discussion on the banning and/or legalization of marijuana use. After reading this book, one can determine the reasoning behind the banning of a so called "drug" that grows naturally without mans intervention. Bottom line; Marijuana is just like anything else; a matter of opinion.

First off, this is a well-written, extremely informative book about both medicinal and recreational use of marijuana. Before reading the book, you are either one of the five percent of Americans who smokes pot or you aren't. The book isn't going to make you run off and buy an eighth of dank if it isn't something you'd do anyway. Conversely, it isn't likely to make chronic smokers quit. The people who need to read this book (parents, elected officials, educators, etc.) most likely either won't read it or dismiss it as pro-pot propaganda. While marijuana is the most widely used illegal drug, I think it will be several decades before public opinion changes in favor of legalizing this drug, whose benefits are greater than alcohol and cigarettes, yet whose harms are negligible by comparison.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Timely Antidote 6. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This book is a timely antidote to all of the B.S. that is propagated by those like the last revewer.
Drug addiction "counselors" are the absolute worst, most biased source of information about marijuana you can find. These people deal with drug addicts and other mentally disturbed individuals on a day in - day out basis and have usually lost all contact with reality in regards to the "drug use" of the vast majority of the population in the real world. There is absolutely no harm in smoking a joint now and then (the actual pattern of use by just about everyone who smokes pot in the real world.) Personally, I find the experience quite valuable in finding new ways to appreciate music, art, food, and sex. "Psychologically addictive?" Not NEARLY as much as television. "Physical withdrawal syndrome?" Nope. (The REAL get-your-kids-hooked drug pushers are the [legal and government-subsidized] tobacco companies.) "The 'astronomical' human toll of traffic and industrial accidents?" NOTHING when compared to alcohol. "The economic costs of marijuana's (so-called) amotivational syndrome?" Believe me, television is WAY, WAY, WAY more "amotivating".
Marijuana is the only illicit drug that is used across all social, economic, ethnic, age, occupational, and regional boundaries. It was originally made illegal for racist and political reasons and it is ridiculous that it remains illegal. Get this book, read it, then loan it out to everyone you know.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a response to some of the posts here 15. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
yes, marijuana is harmless, and our country would be much better off if dope replaced alcohol and cigarettes as the drug of choice. but, as with so many other things, liberals often pretend that the reason we have the terrible laws (or whatever else) we do, is because people don't know the truth. the people prosecuting the drug war don't care whether or not the drugs are bad for us--the cia actually imports drugs into the country (this is not far-out conspiracy theory. see gary webb's book, or alfred mccoy, or jonathan kwitny, to name just a few). the drug laws give the police a right to search and imprison poor and working class people with impunity (i doubt there have been many drug busts at harvard recently). large profits are made both in the building/managing of prisons,and also in the slave labor which is forced out of the inmates. under reagan, for example, the number of state prisoners in for drugs went from 1 in 18, to 1 in 3, with 80% in for mere possession. liberals often talk about how much this kind of thing costs "us", but they forget that cost to us (the common taxpayer) is revenue to them (govt and industry). liberals talk about things like the ability for the us to blow up the world zillions of times, as if the people in charge of pentagon spending are idiots, when actually it's about a large transfer of wealth from the public to the corporations who make the weapons. i'm sorry this hasn't been a review of the book. i confess to not having read the book. i'm sure i'd enjoy reading it, but i'm not sure that i need to, as i already know, from experience and reading, that marijuana is harmless. sounds like a good book to give to a kid who is wondering about whether or not he/she should light up.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Looking for some balance 11. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
We tend to find what we look for. Even researchers are people and people are bias. Zimmer has uncovered many studies that indicate marihuana may not be harmful. On the other side of the coin, there are over 3,000 scientific studies that indicate marihuana use is harmful to the physical and mental health of an individual.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing unbiased summary of scientific evidence 3. August 1999
This book was incredibly informative and well-organized. Every statement made is supported by documented scientific evidence. I was also amazed by how unbiased the book was. The authors cite scientific studies supporting both the positive and negative effects of marijuana, although there are few negative effects to meantion (i.e. birth defects). If you are looking for an entertaining book with anecdotes and flowery writing, or a politically motivated post-hippie "peace, love, smoke up" theme, this is not the book for you. It is just the facts, summarized and well organized. Each chapter begins with a common myth about marijuana, and then presents scientific data to refute the myth. This layout is very convenient for reference purposes, so someone can flip directly to the "marijuana kills brain cells" chapter, or the "marijuana causes violence" chapter, etc. I would recommend this book for all legislators, government officials, teenagers, parents of teenagers, and anyone remotely interested in marijuana.
