Understanding Marijuana

Liane Hansen of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday interviewed Dr. Mitch Earleywine about his recent book, Understanding Marijuana: A New Look at the Scientific Evidence this weekend. Earleywine has the credentials to look at this seriously and be taken seriously. But he probably won’t be.

There’s no shortage of books on this subject, and the Drug War marches on. But as long as we’re slinging books, let me throw Michael Pollan’s Botany of Desire at you. Pollan knows plants, and in his book he explains how four of them — the apple, tulip, marijuana, and potato — evolved to become as important and involved with our lives as they are.

  1. It is sad when addicts are bullied/forced to use illicit narcotics such as heroin. Those who do not use medicinal marijuana need to understand that it is a valid remedy for a number of ailments such as Bi-Polar,MS,Chemotherapy. The list of benefits could fill up pages, yet the government continues to brainwash us and put medicinal marijuana in the same category as drugs such as heroin,crack,methamphetamine,etc. People need to understand the benefits and need to stick up for their medicinal rights.

  2. Hi,
    I am a 30 years old lady, in love wth life, so I have many passions: going out with my girlfriend, practice some sports (football), go our in the evening to a club, so all the things that chicks like me do always. I also have a great love for marijuana. It’ a recent passion but very strong. I like to stay home and smoke a lot. I think that one day we will smoke all together. What do you think about it?

  3. medicinal pot is great, but lets not forget our GOD given rite, Genesis 1:11. And God said, Let the earth bring forth Grass, the Herb yielding seed, and Fruit Tree yielding fruit after its kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the Earth; and it was so.
    Genesis 1:29. And God said Behold, I have given you Every HERB BEARING SEED, witch is upon the face of all the Earth; and it was so.
    How can man put a law on what GOD gave me to use?
