The Cannabis Manifesto is both a call to action and a radical vision of humans’ relationship with this healing but controversial plant. Steve DeAngelo, the founder of Harborside Health Center, the world’s largest medical-cannabis dispensary, presents a compelling case for cannabis as a wellness catalyst that should be legalized. His view that there is not any such thing as recreational cannabis use challenges readers to rethink the whole thing they thought they knew about marijuana.
The Cannabis Manifesto answers essential questions about the plant, the usage of extensive research to fuel a thoughtful discussion about cannabis science and law, in addition to its biological, mental, and religious effects on human beings. With a cultural critic’s eye peering through the lens of social justice, DeAngelo explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions—from the circle of relatives, to the administrative center, to the doctor’s administrative center and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will ceaselessly change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use.
