Editorial Reviews

Review


"Pot Politics will help the movement marshal its best arguments--moral, legal, theological, pragmatic...it will be an eye-opener for students and movement newcomers, and even for seen-it-all movement graybeards...a welcome addition, both to the knowledge base on marijuana policy and its consequences and to the drug reformer's arsenal."--Drug War Chronicle


"It is an important contribution to a debate that should concern all citizens who value justice and health in our society."--PsycCRITIQUES

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Edited by Mitch Earleywine (Associate Professor of Psychology, University at Albany), Pot Politics is an anthology of essays by learned international authors critically reviewing marijuana policy. Addressing the matter from medical, ethical, religious, and social perspectives, Pot Politics essays include "Marijuana and the Media: Science, Propaganda, and Sloppy Reporting in the U.S. News Media", "Judaism and Marijuana", "A Cautious Case for Cannabis Depenalization", "The [Often Unheard] Case Against Marijuana Leniency", and much more. Enthusiastically recommended for anyone studying law or social policy with regard to marijuana, or seeking to educate themselves about the drug, Pot Politics is particularly helpful in that it presents a diverse spectrum of well-researched, well-argued viewpoints.
