Summary
"Matt Stolick presents a detailed social and scientific exploration of the social history of cannabis, the chemical makeup of the cannabis plant, and the effects of cannabis use. By offering a interdisciplinary look at this highly political issue, he articulates the reasoning behind the categorical rejection of legal cannabis use by the United States and other nations. Approaching the discussion of cannabis use from perspectives embedded within philosophy, political science, psychology, and neurobiology, Stolick provides an even-handed account of the scientific realities and social practicalities surrounding the use of cannabis for both medical and recreational purposes." "Drawing on the moral thought of Aristotle, Kant, Mill, and Christianity, this book demonstrates the moral nature of cannabis use. Grounding discussion of cannabis use in both moral theory and scientific fact, this book gives readers a thorough understanding of the social and political issues that continue to dictate cannabis law."--Jacket
