Publisher's Summary

The Cannabis Manifesto is both a call to action and a radical vision of humans' relationship with this healing but controversial plant. Steve DeAngelo, the founder of Harborside Health Center, the world's largest medical-cannabis dispensary, presents a compelling case for cannabis as a wellness catalyst that must be legalized. His view that there is no such thing as recreational cannabis use challenges listeners to rethink everything they thought they knew about marijuana.

The Cannabis Manifesto answers essential questions about the plant, using extensive research to fuel a thoughtful discussion about cannabis science and law as well as its biological, mental, and spiritual effects on human beings. With a cultural critic's eye peering through the lens of social justice, DeAngelo explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions - from the family to the workplace to the doctor's office and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will forever change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use.

Critic Reviews

"Steve DeAngelo is the earliest pioneer of socially responsible and patient- and community-centric cannabis distribution. If you are wondering if medical cannabis might help you or a friend or family member, or if you have questions about medical cannabis, or if you’re just trying to figure out what this issue entails, let this book be your guide." (Willie L. Brown Jr., 41st mayor of San Francisco)
"Steve DeAngelo is the kind of devoted activist who normally would get hospitals and schools named after him, if he had been advocating something more mainstream. He is articulate, fiercely tenacious, and lives by his own principles, in life and in business. But as our recent history has shown, he might have something more important than a monument - a victory." (Peter Sagal, host of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me)
"A pioneering voice in the movement to liberate the cannabis plant and those who rely on it for health and wellness, Steve DeAngelo shares his vision for a more just world in this forward-thinking manifesto." (Aaron Smith, executive director of National Cannabis Industry Association)

the guy reading keep it interesting and alive

for someone who didn't know much about it marijuana and wanted to learn more, I now feel as though my entire outlook on the clamp there's no longer seen in a bad light. only to reinforce that yet again the government will lie and deceive the American people time and time again.

A well written and researched book.

This book was very informative and well researched. I would ask anyone who is on the fence about legalization to read this book and research the facts.

Great book.

Very informative. Astonishing how misinformed we’ve been through absolutely ignorant politicians. Times are a changing, slowly but surely.

A Sentinel Cannabis Work

A Sentinel Cannabis Literary/Documentary Work. Provocative views on the Historical Evolution in this country of Cannabis. I found the "Activist" Approach/ Arguments of Mr. DeAngelo's views on how political issues like Legalization, Medication, Recreation, Incarceration, and... hmmm and yes: Racial Disparity, have played into Cannabis's evolution in this country. Very Informative as well as an entertaining story and Perspective on the Evolution of "the Plant". The Audio is Narrated well by Mr. Barnett.
