""Weed the People"...did provide an engaging look at the flux we are undergoing today."―Bellingham Herald/Bookmonger
"In engaging, well-reported vignettes, Barcott undergoes with the reader a kind of parallel self-education... By the end of his persuasive and surprisingly inspirational account, Barcott is again an occasional smoker who can separate his bourgeois habit from the unwashed hordes at Hempfest."―Seattle Weekly
From the Author
He lives on an island near Seattle with his wife, the memoirist Claire Dederer, and their two children.

I agree with the author that people attending Seattle, Las Vegas, etc hemp fest’s SEND THE WRONG MESSAGES.
Would much rather see people smoke a pipe or a joint than see people taking a big dab and throwing up.
Then the author reached a point where he changed his mind that cannabis was not as bad as he thought, and came to appreciate cannabis.
Disclaimer I use cannabis medically for Crohn’s disease.
Good section on cannabis history and why cannabis was made illegal.
Great intro on the issue for a non-smoker.
I've always been in support of marijuana use, but this book made me a believer.
It is not written by a die-hard pot head, but by an interested bystander who learns himself while writing the book.
I highly recommend it.
The word spacing in the Kindle editions is horrible! As if it was copied with an OCR scanner and then not proofread. A shame because this book deserves 5 stars.
Top international reviews
The chapter on Louisiana, the backwardness of the legal system in this state, without mentioning the racial side of the "war on drug", gives enough food for though to accelerate legalization, and potentially clean up such state of affair nationwide. The USA cannot expect to maintain its "Soft Power" with such exemples of unfair treatment toward its colored minorities.
