Top Customer Reviews
Covering the history of marijuana, legalization issues, cultivation, medical use, different ways of how to use, recipes, strains and marijuana culture, this book is compacted to perfection and this little edition is turning out to be my best friend while traveling on short journeys.
This type of short book on marijuana has been long overdue and I am very happy that Steve Elliott has put "pen to paper" in such a concise, easy to read and entertaining way - great photos too!
And lastly - the price? The publisher got this right, fershur - sensible pricing that most folks can afford. I hope that we will be seeing a price reduction across the whole Kindle range of eBooks to reflect the great value for money such as this Little Black Book of Marijuana obviously reflects.
Thank you, Steve, for this great Little Black Book of Marijuana.
There is a surprising amount of information in this short book, presented in a style that reads with ease. This would be a great introduction to cannabis and an enjoyable read for the informed reader as well. Multiple sources for more information are included.
Having enjoyed Steve Elliott's work on TokeOfTheTown.com for a few years, this was an exciting purchase to make and worth every little silver dime! I plan to make it repeatedly as I pass this gem on.
-Like marijuana and schizophrenia(bul***it)
-Marijuana smoke and lung cancer(they tried to prove it and instead found it may cure cancer)
-Marijuana as a gateway drug(myth)
-History of marijuana(10,000 years)
-Medical benefits of marijuana(tons of uses)
-And much much more
-Plus references to all the studies that prove the information inside
Even law enforcement can gain benefit from this book. It could help serve to update their knowledge on the benefits of marijuana.
If you are new to marijuana use and especially if you have never used marijuana, this book is an invaluable little reference that will give you the honest low down on the essential information you need to know. Author Steve Elliott, editor of the popular cannabis website Toke of the Town (Village Voice Media), puts myths to rest and addresses society's biggest concerns about cannabis with solid research and backed up by the latest scientific evidence.
Not just for beginners, the Little Black Book of Marijuana makes a great resource for activists as it lets you quickly and easily put your fingers on facts and stats when you need them most. With this book as your guide, you'll be well prepared for the next impromptu marijuana debate that breaks out (and you know they do). Even veteran marijuana enthusiasts will undoubtedly learn a new tidbit or two in these pages.
Of course this tiny book isn't big enough to go into great depth, but after reading you'll have a solid basic knowledge of these cannabis related topics:
Marijuana History, Marijuana and Health, Should Marijuana be Legalized?, Cannabis Cultivation, Medical Uses of Marijuana, Ways to Use marijuana, Marijuana Recipes, Varieties and Strains of Marijuana, Marijuana Culture
With this one tiny book I was able to shed new light on the subject with them in a way they could understand and I was comfortable talking to them about. This is a great little book and at a low cost you can't beat it for it's educational value and even it's binding style rocks. I have to say thanks for doing such a fine job with a subject that is nothing if not a pain to talk about.
I am very much anticipating Steve's second edition scheduled to come out later this year!!
Get yours and get educated!!!
