All of our lives we have heard marijuana is bad for us, the first step to drug addiction and life as a slacker, but it just isn't true! Over the last 75 years the Federal government has done its best to discredit a natural medicine that has been used around the world for centuries. In 2009, the American Medical Association officially endorsed the medical value of cannabis and 14 states have legalized medical use with more legislation pending. Medical Marijuana 101 is a concise, accurate, and up-to-date resource for anyone interested in the use of marijuana as a medicine. This can serve both as an introductory resource for those with little experience treating illness with marijuana and as a quick reference for the more experienced user.

In the last six years, Colorado has seen a population boom reminiscent of the state's first few years of settlement. But rather than staking mining claims or establishing homesteads, these new pioneers are on the frontier of an emerging science: marijuana as treatment for various debilitating conditions. This book contains personal accounts from doctors, researchers, and patients--self-proclaimed "refugees" seeking treatment unavailable elsewhere--who are at the forefront of medical marijuana practice. Their stories provide unique insights into a social, political and medical revolution.

After arriving from South Asia approximately a thousand years ago, cannabis quickly spread throughout the African continent. European accounts of cannabis in Africa—often fictionalized and reliant upon racial stereotypes—shaped widespread myths about the plant and were used to depict the continent as a cultural backwater and Africans as predisposed to drug use. These myths continue to influence contemporary thinking about cannabis. In The African Roots of Marijuana Chris S. Duvall corrects common misconceptions while providing an authoritative history of cannabis as it flowed into, throughout, and out of Africa. Duvall shows how preexisting smoking cultures in Africa transformed the plant into a fast-acting and easily dosed drug and how it later became linked with global capitalism and the slave trade. People often used cannabis to cope with oppressive working conditions under colonialism, as a recreational drug, and in religious and political movements. This expansive look at Africa's importance to the development of human knowledge about marijuana will challenge everything readers thought they knew about one of the world's most ubiquitous plants.

From “Reefer Madness” to legal purchase at the corner store With long-time legal and social barriers to marijuana falling across much of the United States, the time has come for an accessible and informative look at attitudes toward the dried byproduct of Cannabis sativa. Marijuana: A Short History profiles the politics and policies concerning the five-leaf plant in the United States and around the world. Millions of Americans have used marijuana at some point in their lives, yet it remains a substance shrouded by myth, misinformation, and mystery. And nearly a century of prohibition has created an enforcement system that is racist, and the continuing effects of racially-targeted over criminalization limit economic and social opportunities in communities of color. Marijuana: A Short History tells this story, and that of states stepping up to enact change. This book offers an up-to-date, cutting-edge look at how a plant with a tumultuous history has emerged from the shadows of counterculture and illegality. Today, marijuana has become a remarkable social, economic, and even political force—with a surprising range of advocates and opponents. Over the past two decades marijuana policy has transformed dramatically in the United States, as dozens of states have openly defied the federal government. Marijuana: A Short History provides a brief yet compelling narrative that discusses the social and cultural history of marijuana but also tells us how a once-vilified plant has been transformed into a serious, even mainstream, public policy issue. Focusing on politics, the media, government, racism, criminal justice, and education, the book describes why public policy has changed, and what that change might mean for marijuana’s future place in society.

The outspoken former governor and New York Times–bestselling author makes the case for full legalization. In this updated edition of his groundbreaking book, famed freethinker Jesse Ventura lays out his philosophy: Now more than ever, our country needs full legalization of medical/recreational marijuana and hemp. Seemingly with every day that goes by we find out more positive things about marijuana, a medicinal plant in abundant supply, yet legalization faces continued resistance from government agencies and big business. Find out why the US government patented CBD and what Big Pharma companies have exclusive rights to create marijuana medication and why the DEA can’t be trusted. Jesse Ventura’s Marijuana Manifesto calls for an end to the War on Drugs. Legalizing marijuana will serve to rejuvenate our pathetic economy and just might make people a little happier. Ventura’s book will show us all how we can take our country back. “More celebs than ever are jumping on the ‘Legalize’ bandwagon. Why? Because it’s safe now. It won’t impact your career anymore. But Jesse Ventura has been a solid proponent of legal cannabis for decades. In [this book], he lays out the good sense of legalization, as well as the sheer insanity of prohibition. As a proud American, he pulls no punches calling out the political elite.” —Dan Skye, High Times editor-in-chief “Ventura is ultimately quite convincing about the ineffectuality of the War on Drugs, and on the contradictions and corruptions of the Drug Enforcement Administration.” —Michael Lindgren, The Washington Post
This is especially important for beginner growers because it will cut down on frustrating and costly trial and error.
Marijuana cultivation can be a complicated and therefore intimidating process, but Professor Lee's Marijuana 101 breaks it down into easy-to-understand steps with a personal touch. This thoughtful book reads like an informal study guide for an "Introduction to Growing" course run by a professor who had a decade of experience in growing, with helpful chapter summaries, a glossary of terms to learn, and lots of tips and side-notes, this is the one textbook you don't want to skim through. There is a lot for new marijuana growers to consider, which can make starting out difficult. What strain is the best to start with? Where should you grow it? What kind of equipment do you need? What pests do you need to look out for? Mistakes in the growing process can be not only personally frustrating, but costly with the amount of equipment needed to grow marijuana indoors. Plus, growing marijuana can have legal ramifications if the grower isn't careful about keeping it concealed. Luckily, Professor Lee has thought of everything. The first half of Marijuana 101 focuses on guiding readers through all the considerations they need to make before they start growing their green in order to cut down on frustrating and costly trial and error. Lee also helps cut down on costs with DIY options for potentially pricey equipment, such as the sections on how to create your own carbon air filter and hydroponics. In potentially the most important section of the book, Lee covers how to keep your garden a secret. With advice on how to disguise your movements and hide your activity from nosy neighbors and discreetly dispose of waste, Lee provides readers with the tools to protect themselves without judgement. The second half of the book focuses on the actual growing process, harvesting and cloning. From sprouting to floral growth, the entire growth cycle is covered in detail with photos for each stage to ensure readers know what they are meant to be looking for. The harvesting and storage section contains step-by-step guides and in-depth explanations on how to ensure that all the reader's work doesn't go to waste at the end. Even the revered cloning process is made more comprehensible in Professor Lee's straightforward explanation. No detail is too small for Professor Lee to comment on, whether it is the pros and cons of different garden locations or the methods of cleaning your containers, readers will never feel lost or confused --which is definitely more than can be said for most textbooks. Lee's personal experience with growing means he is well aware of the challenges of marijuana cultivation, and he does an excellent job preparing readers to face those challenges with a combination of preventative measures and tips to help recover from mistakes without too much additional hassle.
