Description

When the city of Lisbon, Portugal, was gearing up for a potentially raucous soccer tournament, public safety officials did something shocking. To try to mitigate fan violence, the police announced that soccer fans would not be arrested for smoking marijuana prior to a big match between England and France. Much to everyoneas satisfaction, the match went off without incident. Later that night, however, after fans left the stadium and made their way to local pubs, violence erupted, and several hundred citizens were arrested.Could that eveningas violence have been avoided if the rules of the stadium had applied to society as a whole? Yes, say nationally recognized marijuana-policy experts Mason Tvert and Paul Armentano. Tvert and Armentano compare and contrast the relative harms and legal status of the two most popular recreational substances in the worldamarijuana and alcohol. They argue that current laws and social norms steer people toward alcohol, even though it is, by any objective measure, the more dangerous of the two substances."Marijuana Is Safer" reaches for a broad audience, including people who have never used marijuana and may be skeptical about the authorsa claims. The book includes a detailed introduction to the plant and its effects on the user, and it debunks some of the governmentas most frequently cited marijuana myths. For current and aspiring advocates of marijuana-law reform, as well as anyone else who is interested in what is becoming a major political battle at all levels of government, the authors spell out why the message that marijuana is safer than alcohol must be a prominent part of the public debate over legalization.Most importantly, for the millions of Americans who want to help advance the cause of marijuana-policy reformaor simply want to defend their own personal asafera choiceathis book supplies the talking points and detailed information needed to make persuasive arguments to friends, family, coworkers, and elected officials. Written in a reader-friendly style, but loaded with facts and insightful analysis about the awar on marijuanaa and the drive to end it, "Marijuana Is Safer" is the perfect book for anyone who hasaor has not yetaever wondered, aWhy are we driving people to drink?a
