Review:

"Many interesting dimensions of cannabis research are reflected in this book, which is written in an intelligent and entertaining style." (About.com, 11 September 2011)

"Cannabis: Philosophy for Everyone- What Were We Just Talking About? Provides a refreshing collection of essays- from both sides of the fence- on the many philosophical facets of pot ingestion...HIGH TIMES associate publisher Rick Cusick writes in the foreword: "While I personally believe that legalizing cannabis would encourage a more civilized society, I also recognize that reasonable people can disagree. That is why this book is so timely and important. There are overblown claims on both sides of the equation and we need to have the more disciplined discourse that philosophy provides." (HIGH TIMES, February 2011)"Their newest release Cannabis-Philosophy for Everyone aims to bridge the world of academia, as it relates to cannabis, with the interests and concerns of those on the outside. Contributors include international scholars in the fields of philosophy, psychology, sociology, law, pharmacology, psychotherapy, and medicine as well as non-academics associated with the cultivation, distribution, and sale of cannabis. For those looking for a thought-provoking, heady read, find out more about this book at www.wiley.com." (Nug Magazine, November 2010)"The book is both high- and low-brow and is sure to please undergrads searching for epiphanies while hanging out in hazy basements." (The Washington Post, November 2010)

"It's a serious read that should be on your bookshelf. We are going to say, especially if you are a cannabis industry / business owner; this book will help you to understand your product and the people that love it so that you can apply what you've learned in "philosophy class" to the real world in a way that will boost your brand.." (Hempista, 24 October 2010)

From the Back Cover:

CANNABIS
PHILOSOPHY FOR EVERYONE

A hazy student phase? A harmless way to relax? An effective form of pain relief? Or a dangerous and addictive narcotic? The debate on the status and legality of cannabis continues to rage on. Here, personal anecdotes, combined with academic and scientific reports, wrestle with some of the fascinating issues associated with cannabis use. In these pages, philosophers, psychologists, and medical experts (some of whom may even enjoy the occasional spliff) try to understand:

  • What exactly does it mean to get high?
  • Is it immoral to smoke marijuana for pleasure?
  • Is cannabis the start of the slippery road to other, more dangerous drugs?
  • Is altering our consciousness a basic human need?
  • What is the morality or immorality of cannabis prohibition laws?

Cannabis - Philosophy for Everyone offers frank, professionally informed, and often humorous discussions on the gourmandise and ethical, social, and political dimensions of this psychoactive and outlawed drug.
