The lies and propaganda we Americans have been fed about cannabis is not only astounding but sickening, and Jack Herer necessarily shines a bright light into the dark recesses of our nation’s cannabis hypocrisy.
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 in the US. The recreational use of hemp is but one facet of this informative book. Herer thoroughly documents the petrochemical industry’s plot to outlaw this renewable source of paper, energy, food, textiles, and medicine.
