Overview

George McMahon, afflicted with pain, spasms and nausea from the treatment of a rare terminal disease has, despite his personal trial, become one of the leading crusaders for the legalization of medical marijuana. One of only six United States citizens given the substance by the little known "Uncle Sam's Marijuana Farm," McMahon fights to bring similar relief to people suffering from such illnesses as glaucoma, cancer, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, trauma and spasms who can be helped by prescription pot. From the steps of state capitols and presenting his case before the Supreme Court, to testifying before Congress and appearing on local and national media, McMahon carries on his arduous struggle.

The recipient of the Certificate of Heroism, given to him by former first lady Nancy Reagan, now reveals his unique, courageous journey and sounds a call to arms for those who would join his ongoing battle to legalize medical marijuana.

    Required Reading For American Patients and Doctors

    I had no interest in medical marijuana when I first picked up Prescription Pot, but I soon discovered this book is not some hippie diatribe. It is one of the most heartfelt, amusing and intriguing biographies I've ever read, with the ability to teach people the value of civil political discourse. This is an underdog's tale that every person dealing with pain, disability and death should experience. And the groundbreaking clinical study contained in the appendix is convincing evidence of official wrongdoing.
