Pot Politics: Marijuana and the Costs of Prohibition (Hardcover)

by Mitch Earleywine (Editor)


You may want to blast an email to your contacts in the field that Pot Politics, published by Oxford University Press, edited by Mitch Earleywine, has just been released. I wrote the only anti-marijuana chapter in the book, "The (Often Unheard) Case Against Marijuana Leniency." The rest of the book contains the main arguments used by marijuana sympathizers to advance their case.

It can be bought here: http://www.amazon.com/Pot-Politics-Marijuana-Costs-Prohibition/dp/0195188020

Pot Politics is particularly helpful in that it presents a diverse spectrum of well-researched, well-argued viewpoints., December 8, 2006

Reviewer: Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

Edited by Mitch Earleywine (Associate Professor of Psychology, University at Albany), Pot Politics is an anthology of essays by learned international authors critically reviewing marijuana policy. Addressing the matter from medical, ethical, religious, and social perspectives, Pot Politics essays include "Marijuana and the Media: Science, Propaganda, and Sloppy Reporting in the U.S. News Media", "Judaism and Marijuana", "A Cautious Case for Cannabis Depenalization", "The [Often Unheard] Case Against Marijuana Leniency", and much more. Enthusiastically recommended for anyone studying law or social policy with regard to marijuana, or seeking to educate themselves about the drug, Pot Politics is particularly helpful in that it presents a diverse spectrum of well-researched, well-argued viewpoints.
