´´The authors boldly demonstrate their capacity to survey both the biological evolution and widely varied human cultures´ uses of cannabis. In doing so, they have produced a work that is thorough, globally ambitious, and carefully constructed. The extraordinary power and range of their cross-cultural perspectives are likely to elicit fresh consideration of familiar studies.´´ ?Richard Tucker, School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan´´Cannabis is one of the best, if not the best history of the extraordinary plant Cannabis sativa that I have read. It is encyclopedic in its scope, painstakingly documented, and well written. A must for libraries, cannabis scholars and the growing number of readers who are interested in this remarkable plant.´´ ?Lester Grinspoon, Emeritus Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of Marihuana Reconsidered and Marihuana, the Forbidden Medicine´´This is a unique and valuable work. It aptly summarizes the voluminous literature on cannabis to bring the reader a better understanding of its origins and uses, as well as the relationship with man, its chief employer and manipulator. The authors´ experience in the subject makes them uniquely qualified to synthesize and interpret the material in a coherent manner.´´ ?Ethan Russo, President of the International Cannabinoid Research Society

The Cannabis Manifesto is both a call to action and a radical vision of humans´ relationship with this healing but controversial plant. Steve DeAngelo, the founder of Harborside Health Center, the world´s largest medical-cannabis dispensary, presents a compelling case for cannabis as a wellness catalyst that must be legalized. His view that there is no such thing as recreational cannabis use challenges listeners to rethink everything they thought they knew about marijuana. The Cannabis Manifesto answers essential questions about the plant, using extensive research to fuel a thoughtful discussion about cannabis science and law as well as its biological, mental, and spiritual effects on human beings. With a cultural critic´s eye peering through the lens of social justice, DeAngelo explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions - from the family to the workplace to the doctor´s office and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will forever change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use. 1.

In the world of medicine, experts are constantly looking for the right method to cure illnesses and diseases; they are willing to spend thousands and millions of dollars when it comes to research. Despite the state-of-the-art technologies that are created to come up with the most effective means to cure diseases or illnesses, scientists and experts still have not met the requirements to provide treatments that are affordable and have only a few side effects. For instance, people who are suffering from late-stage cancer may not get the real treatment they need. Costly treatments like chemotherapy may just help them relieve the symptoms and prevent the cancer cells from spreading, but will it take away the cancer? Sadly, no; the patient still continues to struggle and will not acquire the recovery that he or she deserves. On the other hand, there´s one alternative treatment that is deemed promising and a breakthrough when it comes to curing various diseases and illnesses, and it is no other than cannabis, or marijuana, a popular plant that is always associated with dangerous drugs and prohibited by the government in most parts of the world. Many textbooks, magazines, journals, and documentaries have been made about marijuana, and sadly not all of them are in favor of cannabis. This may be due to the stigma that has been attached to marijuana for several decades already. It can be associated with the extensive use of marijuana that can cause a feeling of being high, just as other illegal drugs do. This became more apparent in 1971, when President Nixon declared a war against drugs, and this included marijuana. Marijuana was used by our ancient ancestors in many corners of the world. There is evidence that shows that cannabis was indeed part of their daily activity, as several remnants of cannabis were found in ancient sites and mummies. 1. Language: English.
