Editorial Reviews

Review

"For backers of legalization, Sabet is dangerous, because he can't be easily dismissed as a reefer-madness-style propagandist. The marijuana reform community should play close attention to his arguments, and the prohibitionists, if they have any plans to reverse the tide, should do the same." 
--Ryan Grim, DC bureau Chief, Huffington Post 
 
"A most compelling look...Sabet explores this challenging landscape and arrives at more comprehensive, effective solutions than either legalization or incarceration could provide to deal with marijuana use." 
--Dr. Drew Pinsky, Host, HLN

"A clear-cut argument dispelling the hazy myths about a dangerous drug that threatens all of us, especially the next generation."
--William C. Moyers, VP, Public Affairs, Hazelden
 
"
Compassionate and knowledgeable, Kevin Sabet is the most important new voice in the American drug policy debate. Policymakers, parents, and concerned citizens should heed his meticulously factual case against marijuana legalization."
--David Frum, Cont. editor, CNN, DailyBeast/Newsweek

"Kevin Sabet is a beacon in the confusing haze surrounding marijuana legalization. This book relies on science--not emotion or anecdote--to guide us through this complicated social issue."
--Christopher K. Lawford, author of Recover to Live

From the Back Cover

A former Senior Advisor in President Obama's drug policy office, Dr. Kevin Sabet carefully considers the consequences of marijuana legalization. In Reefer Sanity, Dr. Sabet uses a plethora of research to argue that the United States should not legalize marijuana with all of its attendant social costs, nor damage the future prospects of marijuana smokers by prosecuting and jailing them. Rather, he contends that we should shift our emphasis to education about the newly revealed health dangers of marijuana use, as well as focus on intervention and treatment. Before we go ahead and legalize marijuana, he argues we ought to try these kinds of evidence-based reforms first.

The Seven Great Myths About Marijuana: 
(1) Marijuana Is Harmless and Nonaddictive
(2) Smoked or Eaten Marijuana Is Medicine
(3) Countless People Are Behind Bars Simply for Smoking Marijuana
(4) The Legality of Alcohol and Tobacco Strengthen the Case for Legal Marijuana
(5) Legal Marijuana Will Solve the Government's Budgetary Problems
(6) Portugal and Holland Provide Successful Models for Legalization 
(7) Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment Are Doomed to Fail--So Why Try?
