Editorial Reviews


"[Alex Berenson] has a reporter's tenacity, a novelist's imagination, and an outsider's knack for asking intemperate questions. The result is disturbing." (—Malcom Gladwell The New Yorker)

Takes a sledgehammer to the promised benefits of marijuana legalization, and cannabis enthusiasts are not going to like it one bit.” (—Mother Jones)

“A brilliant antidote to all the…false narratives about pot out there.” (—American Thinker)

“An intensively researched and passionate dissent from the now prevailing view that marijuana is relatively harmless.” (—The Marshall Project)

"Berenson has done an important public service...[Tell Your Children] could save a few lives." (—The Guardian)

"The stakes are high...aren't we better off listening to Berenson than to some marijuana magnate?" (—The Spectator)

"An interesting book that should be read by all concerned." (—The Washington Times)

"Filled with statistics that shock." (—The Times of London)
