Review By strdogmoon: Seattle, WA, USA
This book’s strength is its easy readability, a fact that should be stressed. Too often books dealing with the subject of drugs are either too dry and scientific or to New Age and flower child. While this book does focus on the positive aspects of marijuana usage (sometimes to border on “hippyish”) I feel it does so in a way that does not alienate those who might be nervous about reading drug-positive literature.
First, let’s use the words cannabis or hemp instead of marijuana – as the author suggests – and second, let’s get this book out to everyone over the age of 15 or 16. Parents, before you talk with your kids about “marijuana”, read this book! Why? This book is not about “sparking a bowl” and getting high: This book uses facts and common sense to explain the history of cannabis and its uses (which are far more than medicinal), what cannabis has done and can do for humanity, and the governmental/commercial conspiracy against cannabis (and its advocates) in the US. The recreational use of hemp is but one facet of this informative book.
“The Emperor Wears No Clothes” changed my life. The lies and propaganda we Americans have been fed about cannabis (particularly in recent generations) is not only astounding but sickening, and Jack Herer necessarily shines a bright light into the dark recesses of our nation’s cannabis hypocrisy.
