Bad Trip: How the War Against Drugs is Destroying America

  • "Drug abuse is bad. But Joel Miller demonstrates that the War on Drugs is far worse. The government is financing terrorism and underwriting corruption even as it violates the freedom of Americans. Yet drug use continues unabated.

Cocaine: An Unauthorized Biography

  • by Dominic Streatfeild Streatfeild's appropriately rapid narrative takes in such key moments and players as "the year of cocaine" 1969, when the film Easy Rider reintroduced the drug to American popular culture, and George Jung, whose exploits are chronicled in Ted Demme's film Blow, to create a portrait of the drug that ranges over centuries. Though he supports legalization, Streatfeild acknowledges the evil and corruption surrounding the trade. Drawing lessons from history, he also suggests the possibility that "cocaine will fizzle out in the year 2015 the way it did in the early twentieth century." At the close of this absorbing book, he adds, "It deserves to."

Prescription Pot: A Leading Advocate's Heroic Battle to Legalize Medical Marijuana

  • As of the writing of this book, McMahon was one of seven persons in the U.S. who could smoke marijuana legally. As a person with the rare genetic disorder Nail Patella Syndrome, he participates in the federal government's Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program. Under the program's auspices, he receives 300 government-grown-and-packed joints each month. (Thanks to the redoubled war on drugs, the program no longer accepts new participants.) The herb frees him from most of the pain associated with the bone and joint deformities resulting from his disease and allows him to live a more normal life. Those 300 joints replace 400 morphine pills for him, yet medical morphine is legal and medical cannabis isn't. McMahon has made campaigning for legalization of medical marijuana his life's mission, and the book documents his dialogues with legislators and law-enforcement personnel to date. It also includes heartrending testimony from other medical marijuana users, legal and not, and the transcript of a supportive scientific study. A well thought-out argument in favor of legalizing cannabis for clinical use. Donna Chavez Copyright � American Library Association. All rights reserved
