About this deal

By making this relatively harmless drug illegal, we are criminalising millions as well as giving money to organised crime. Thank goodness we have an eminent scientist such as Nutt arguing the case for a more mature, pragmatic and compassionate approach to our society's use of cannabis. Professor Nutt is much more interested in the medical uses and the harm that is being done to many UK citizens through the establishment's over-cautious approach.

Apart from offering benefits for patients, legalising cannabis would transform drug crime and punishment.So much money has been made that if you put every dollar on top of each other it would reach 1/4 of the way to the moon. Overall though, the book is a good read and will make a great resource for students, patients, doctors, activists – anyone interested in cannabis and drug policy. The debate about the legal status of this ubiquitous herb is set to continue but Professor Nutt’s book throws considerable light on this contentious issue.

I've been curious about the medical science of cannabis use, given its varied legalization and illegalization across Europe, the US, and the UK in recent decades.

It does carry risks, such as dependency, particularly if started young and he does state that one in ten can become dependent, but this is much less than tobacco, alcohol and opiates.

UK's point of view, talked about here extensively, reminds me strongly of how it looked like in Poland. In David's first ground-breaking book on the subject, he will cover its impact of all areas of the body and the brain and its effective use for treatment of illness from chronic pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and PTSD, to anxiety and depression. The drug became illegal due to propaganda from the US where the world turned against the drug after a clever propaganda campaign in the US, where the end of alcohol prohibition in 1933 threatened many police jobs. His writing has been published in The Nation, the Los Angeles Times and Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics.

This is the essential knowledge that cuts through the noise and give us evidence-based information that will change people's lives.

THC can, obviously, leave you stoned, so pharmacists should remind people to not drive, operate heavy machinery and so on. Yet people in numerous countries, including the US, Holland, Belgium and Germany, can access medical marijuana, while several states across the US have legalised recreational cannabis. As a result, it's been estimated that over a million people in the UK are using illegal cannabis for medical purposes every day.But, he makes a convincing case for the almost complete failure of New Labour to take effective, progressive action on drugs. A great book pulling together all the REAL EVIDENCE on cannabis to inform rather than political propaganda to mislead. He has edited the Journal of Psychopharmacology for over two decades and acts as the psychiatry drugs advisor to the British National Formulary.
