Summary

Summary

Cannabis is one of the most controversial drugs on the planet. Its borderline legal status has caused it to be hailed as a medicinal wonder-drug and equally villified as a social menace. Looking at the drug in all its many guises, this guide neither preaches the benefits of the drug nor condemns its ills, but rather lays out the facts in a straightforward, objective way. It outlines the history, laws and culture that have accreted around it, its effect on health and its booming commercial potential. It features a variety of interviews from a cross-section of society to paint an honest picture of how society views the drug today.
