The UK Government has persisted with prohibition policies, which … have not reduced the consumption of cannabis,” says Professor Nutt, and may exacerbate harms and fuel crime.

And yet people are taking more drugs than at any other time in history and traffickers and drug pushers want this war to continue because they are making trillions of dollars. Renowned academic Professor David Nutt makes a compelling case for the medical benefits of cannabis. Moving through an illuminating tour of the social history and the medical science behind cannabis, Grinspoon unpacks the layers of disinformation left by a sordid history of government propaganda, racial suppression, and indifference from the medical community to answer questions like:Is cannabis addictive? I’m sure if people want more detailed assessments they can find these online / in other texts and build on what this book already starts. It's amazing and yet the USA has been trying to burn coca leaves for 50 years when it's part of some countries in South America's livelihoods - not to make cocaine (that's the USA) but to live on and grow as we might coffee beans or wheat.Biography: David Nutt is Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology and director of the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit in the Division of Brain Sciences at Imperial College, London. countries including Holland, Belgium and Germany have made cannabis a medicine and yet in the UK it's even mainly illegal as a form of treatment.

In fact from 1995 to 2019, people between the ages of 16 and 59 have gone from 23% of the population to just under 32% of the population who have tried it.

A lot of information to take in, but good to have the facts rather than the fiction put about by media and the government.Peter Grinspoon is uniquely qualified to dispense verifiable knowledge about cannabis use and misuse as both prescriber of therapeutic cannabis to qualified medical patients and a councilor to cannabis misusers.

The UK government has persisted with prohibition policies which have not reduced the consumption of cannabis.
