Editorial Reviews


"On a foundation of sophisticated techniques based on current understanding of brain chemistry and function, and using tight, thorough reasoning, the author concludes that duration, not frequency, of use produces identifiable impairment in the performance of complex cognitive processes, and that at least some of the impairment remains after abstinence....the text is sufficiently clear that most nontechnical readers will follow the arguments. This will be an especially valuable book for cannabis researchers, while those in clinical and policy making positions will find the conclusions enhanced by the rigor with which they are achieved." Yonah Klem, Readings

"...a useful text, providing a comprehensive overview of the research into cannabis from its inception to present day. It provides a thorough starting point to those interested in the wider reaching sociological aspects of cannabis use." Medical Sociology News

Book Description

This timely and well-argued volume provides an extensive and comprehensive critical review of the literature relevant to cannabis and cognitive functioning, in the light of important recent findings in the pharmacology and neuropsychology of cannabis.Original studies conducted by the author are presented, and her conclusion, that long term cannabis use may produce irreversible impairment in higher cognitive functions, will be of compelling interest to a wide range of clinicians, researchers and policy makers.

Format: Hardcover
a nice historical glimpse into the days when researchers worked hard to uphod the broken logic of the war on drugs, where marijuana was a class III drug posing great risk to the user with no valid medical use.
