Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review An intensively researched and passionate dissent from the now prevailing view that marijuana is relatively harmless. * The Marshal Project * A brilliant antidote to all the...false narratives about pot out there. * American Thinker * Takes a sledgehammer to the promised benefits of marijuana legalization, and cannabis enthusiasts are not going to like it one bit. * Mother Jones * [Alex Berenson] has a reporter's tenacity, a novelist's imagination, and an outsider's knack for asking intemperate questions. The result is disturbing. -- -Malcom Gladwell * The New Yorker *
