Editorial Reviews

4Evergreen Group
"Calling Steve Elliott an accomplished journalist in the fields of drug policy reform and medical cannabis would be a significant understatement....[A]s far as broad-spectrum introductions go you’d be hard-pressed to find better." --4Evergreen Group
Curtis Cartier
"From cover to cover, The Little Black Book of Marijuana delivers exactly what it promises: An easy-to-read, well-researched informatively entertaining 'essential guide to the world of cannabis'....[I]f a cannabis fan was forced to choose one piece of weed-themed literature to bring with him or her to a deserted island (or even just on a long plane ride), it should probably be this one." --Seattle Weekly Blog

    The most important information about cannabis, all in one place

    I was skeptical that the author could cover the most crucial facts about marijuana in a book this size (about 20,000 words), but the history, culture, politics and science of of the plant are covered in a compelling and readable fashion. Recommended!

    The Little Black Book of Marijuana is a simple, yet, in depth bo

    The Little Black Book of Marijuana is a simple, yet, in depth book about marijuana and everything there is to know about it. From history, to culture and cultivation; each chapter is about a different aspect of the plant. Author Steve Elliot gives facts while mixing them with his own personal stories or historical events.
    Elliot does take a boring subject of information on a plant and makes it readable, but in my opinion it isn’t page turning and is something you have to force yourself to finish. If it wasn’t relatively short with pictures it would have been harder to finish. Some chapters of the book are more interesting than others, some quite short and some a little lengthy. A quarter of the book is about every type or strain of marijuana while another quarter is a large history lesson. By the end of the book the author seems like he is repeating himself and it seems as if you’re rereading something from an earlier part of the book.
    I like how he kept most of the book simple and easy to read, no big words or anything too scientific for the average person. How easy it was to read was what kept me reading it. The reading was slightly humorous throughout which made it a better read to stomach. On the other hand I didn’t like that half of the book took a persuasive writing style, it was obvious where Elliot stood on his own opinions about the drug; trying to convince the reader that it’s not bad and should be legal instead of just talking about the facts. The author states how it should only be used for medical purposes, but then admits to trying just about every type of marijuana for recreational use.
    If you don’t know an awful much about marijuana and would like to then this book is for you. If you’re not interested in the topic of marijuana then it will be boring and the information will seem useless that you learn. It would be a good book for somebody who doesn’t know anything about marijuana, but wants to sound like he does after this short read.
