More than one million Americans now use cannabis in place of conventional pharmaceuticals. Yet the federal government refuses to acknowledge these broader societal shifts and continues with a 'raid and arrest' policy; 49.5% of all drug-related arrests involve the sale, manufacture or possession of cannabis. In the first book to explore the new landscape of cannabis in the United States, investigative journalists Alyson Martin and Nushin Rashidian present a deeply-researched and insightful story of how recent developments tie into this thorny subject.
