Book Review: Marihuana, Deceptive Weed

Book Review: Marihuana, Deceptive Weed

This book goes into lots of great detail and it discusses a 5000-year history of cannabis, citing a lot of studies and includes lots of data and charts.  BUT, it doesn't mention "Reefer Madness" and the anti-marijuana propaganda of the United States 1930's and 40's.  In my opinion, most of the research that the book cites in the 60's and 70's need to be taken with a grain of salt.  People who were participating in these studies had been essentially told that marijuana will make you lose your mind and go crazy.  So I believe a lot of them 'acted out' the way they believed it would affect them. 

My opinion is that marijuana will affect you however you think it will.  Had these people in the studies been told it just makes you relax and eat too much, the studies would probably have turned out much differently.

  • “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

    – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)
