This is a nonfiction story about the subculture that formed around the marijuana industry in Northern California. It documents a unique time and place in American history that is today impacting society on a global scale. It is a personal narrative that tells the story of one young man's experiences over nearly a decade in the rapidly changing cannabis industry; embedded within the story lies an exploration of a budding young culture with new values and new ideas. Through unusual events and unusual characters, the story paints a picture of the lifestyle and the conflicts generated from the black market industry. This is an important document about the influence that the events in Northern California and Southern Oregon are having on American society, politics, and future generations, and indeed the rest of the world. It is a lighthearted narrative, built with amusing anecdotes of a life around marijuana, but its intention and motive are quite serious. The story is acknowledging a movement. There is far more happening in the remote valleys of the California wilderness than just a few renegades hoping for easy money. Away from the eyes of the parent society, hundreds of thousands of disenchanted youth have gathered to protest through practice and to generate the foundation for an alternative existence.As the debate over the legality of marijuana continues to inspire passion around the country, this audiobook takes a deeper look at what it means and seeks another perspective on what the cannabis industry has already done. And it asks the question: What is gained? What is lost? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael A T Clark. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/145702/bk_acx0_145702_sample.mp3.

Morphine, writes Richard J. Miller, "is the most significant chemical substance mankind has ever encountered." So ancient that remains of poppies have been found in Neolithic tombs, it is the most effective drug ever discovered for treating pain. "Whatever advances are made in medicine," Miller adds, "nothing could really be more important than that." And yet, when it comes to mind-altering substances, morphine is only a cc or two in a vast river that flows through human civilization, ranging from LSD to a morning cup of tea. In Drugged, Miller takes listeners on an eye-opening tour of psychotropic drugs, describing the various kinds, how they were discovered and developed, and how they have played multiple roles in virtually every culture. The vast scope of chemicals that cross the blood-brain barrier boggle the very brain they reach: cannabis and cocaine, antipsychotics and antidepressants, alcohol, amphetamines, and Ecstasy - and much more. Literate and wide-ranging, Miller weaves together science and history, telling the story of the undercover theft of 20,000 tea plants from China by a British spy, for example; the European discovery of coffee and chocolate; and how James Wolfgang von Goethe, the famous man of letters, first isolated the alkaloid we now know as caffeine. Miller explains what scientists know - and don't - about the impact of each drug on the brain, down to the details of neurotransmitters and their receptors. He clarifies the differences between morphine and heroin, mescaline and LSD, and other similar substances. Drugged brims with surprises, revealing the fact that antidepressant drugs evolved from the rocket fuel that shot V2 rockets into London during World War II, highlighting the role of hallucinogens in the history of religion, and asking whether Prozac can help depressed cats. Entertaining and authoritative, Drugged is a truly fascinating book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roger Clark. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/017967/bk_adbl_017967_sample.mp3.

Pre-University Paper from the year 2014 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1+, , language: English, abstract: The reason why I chose the topic "The prohibition of cannabis and the effect on the Paper and Pharmaceutical Industry in the USA" is that a lot of people don't know the actual reason why cannabis was prohibited in the United States back in the 1930s and 40s. It is a common fact that smoking marihuana can lead to a seizure of unrestrained indulgence.However this was not the actual reason why people tried to ban cannabis in America. In this research paper I am going to answer the central question what the deciding reason was that cannabis was prohibited in the USA. Furthermore I am going to work out the effects on the paper- and pharmaceutical Industry.First I am going to describe what cannabis actually is and how it is used as a natural resource. Then I am going to discuss under what influence cannabis was prohibited in the USA. Finally I try to find a proper way to deal with the situation and have a look at the future for the cannabis industry.
