Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you would like to be one of those people who seem to know everything imortant there is to know about marijuana, this is the book you ought to read. Bello presents it all with balance, lucidty and a sort of calm spirituality that your rarely encounter. It's the sort of book you can dip into at random, absorbing nonconsecutive sections at your leisure. --High Times, Dean Latimer, Sr. Editor

"One of the most well-written, concise, comprehensive analysis of marijuana today." --NORML, Dick Cowan

"Well-written, concise, detailed and without any waffle, but easy to comprehend. --LCC, England --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I found this book to be an easy read.

I recommend this book to all the ignorant prosecutors of the plant cannabis and of course to all the people who like to learn more about Cannabis.

I thought I knew a lot about marijuana until I read this book. Joan Bello has not only written an excellent book, she is an active advocate.
She is an in-take processor for a class action law suit against the Federal Government endorsing the medical use of marijuana.
I have Glaucoma, and have been legally blind since 1993. I have had bad reactions to traditional medications. Marijuana may be able to help me save my remaining vision.
This book has been well researched and documented. Joan Bello and the other contributors to the book really care about people.
When is this country going to wake up. Are prisons are overflowing. We are letting out violent crimminals on the streets years early to make room for non violent drug offenders.
I would like to thank joan and the attorneys behind the class action law suit. It is time to stand up and be counted.

This book tells the truth. The author was sentenced to 12 years in prison for her beliefs -- right here in Amerika (I wish that I had 1/3 the courage of this person). In her book, she tells how marijuana is a life saving plant and explains its actions on the human being in terms of physical, Psychological and spiritual dimensions. In her writings she explains how the medical dangers of marijuana are basicaly non-existant and that the spiritual aspects are what terrorize the the government(how true). Marijuana will become the wonder drug of the new millennium.

Format: Paperback
Joan Bello adresses feelings I have always had but I was not sure why. Now it makes a lot more sense. One big bonus in reading this book was I now try to pay a lot more attention to my inner self when I am in this higher state of consciousness as opposed to watching TV or something mundane like that. I try to expose myself to more stimulations than I use to. One other thing that I have noticed is I can really feel the depressing nature of alcohol way more than I use to. I have always had the feeling but I did not pay much attention to it. Now I find it really easy to tune into and it turns me off. This book is very interesting, a touch difficult to read in parts but in the end it improves your awareness of yourself and of this little beautiful plant that I have embraced for most of my life.

Joan Bello is a very good friend and I helped in researching this book for her. Her wisdom of this plant and the way she expresses herself is honest, truthful and factual. Those in society who oppose this plant should be forced to write a book report on this brilliant work of truth! I am looking forward to the new updated edition coming out soon! I love you joan! James Dawson

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Kay Lee on March 3, 2008
Format: Perfect Paperback
I've read all three editions of Ms. Bello's book and have to say that the Final Edition was worth waiting for - particularly the information on post tramatic syndrome. In my work with both patients and prisoners and their families, I have noted symptoms of post trauma and/or depression, so am very aware that the majority of these people suffer from one or both conditions. I recently gave a copy of the book to my daughter's doctor, as I do with every doctor my family sees; and at the birth of my last granddaughter, we were surprised and delighted when he shared his enthusiasm about both the book and the medicine during her labor. To my knowledge not one doctor who has taken the time to read 'Benefits of Marijuana' has disagreed with any of Ms. Bello's findings. No one wants to admit that marijuana has been unfairly maligned for mostly fictional reasons, but the fact is that the worst side effect of the use of this plant is the law. I hope you will get educated; read the book, write a review, and join the effort to right this intolerable wrong.
