This book is not simply a veiled endorsement for marijuana use, it's a story about how one man overcame the debilitating effects of arthritis. That is why it's inspiring! It's more about a holistic approach to living with arthritis rather than a guy smoking dope and being lazy. Our society has made real progress in recent years toward breaking down the stigmas associated with marijuana use, and so if you're "on the fence", this book may help you open your mind and become comfortable with the thought of self-medicating with something you can grow in your own backyard. Learn about how swimming and ball rolling can bring relief; try changing your diet and even loose some weight. Also; the author offers numerous places to go for further research. "Arthritis and Marijuana" is a very good and easy read........good luck!
This was a great book but was incredibly short. Wish more people were reading this info. Ive been using marijuana since i was 16 and i have gone to college, graduated, become a nurse and fathered two children that are now grown. It is a wonderful little plant and the greedy corp need to be overtaken.
There a lot of books written about using marijuana, however most of them are poorly written, but contain good information. This book is well written, but contains very little useful information. I do not understand how how a book can deal with marijuana and arthritis and not even mention the use of topical creams or specific strains of medical marijuana.
