Cannabiz: The Explosive Rise of the Medical Marijuana Industry

John Geluardi, PoliPoint (, $15.95 trade paper (181p) ISBN 978-0-9824171-9-5
The advent of the medical marijuana movement in California and other states represents a sea change for American drug policy and will shape the debate for decades to come. In this detailed exploration of the movement, Geluardi looks at the history of marijuana law in the U.S., the research into the medicinal effects of the drug, the growth of the movement, the controversial push for overt legalization in several states, and the case both for and against. Throughout, he offers a comprehensively researched look at history, economics, health, and the politics of the movement; compassionate and objective, the author refuses to demonize patients and eagerly investigates dispensary operators and individuals involved in all aspects of the trade. Readers from all sides of the political spectrum will benefit from his analysis of a growing movement. (Oct.)
