    Cannabis setting the record straight!

    Marijuana, pot, joint,leaf, ganja, cannabis sativa. Very polarizing stuff. Either it's seen as a gateway drug, leading the user toward harder and more dangerous drugs; or it's a harmless relaxant, a social lubricant less dangerous than cigarettes or alcohol. It's either a crime that gets you arrested; or a medicinal godsend capable of easing incredible physical pain.

    This book provides a detailed look at cannabis, it's place in history; uses; growth and harvesting; political and law enforcement developments; medicinal uses; religious uses; use as an artistic enhancement and much more. The book takes a reasoned approach that will educate all but the most closed minds.

    Did you know-In Marco Polo's writings, a group of guards of an Arab leaders stronghold after being given the task of killing a hated rival were stirred into a murderous rage by the use of hashish. They became the 'Hashsahshins' later to be known as assassins?

    Cannabis is the most widely used drug on earth, it's non addictive, easy to grow and harvest, has myriad other uses (hemp,etc.) and never been proven to promote aggressive or criminal behaviors. So why is it regulated against, the target of such a campaign of misinformation and fear mongering? It's a pretty amazing tale!

    Did you know- Special rolling papers called Ez-Widers, were a salute to the movie Easy Rider? And one brand even included a thin metal strip in the paper so when the joint was smoked down to the end you had a built in handle?
