Cannabis: Philosophy for Everyone- What Were We Just Talking About? Provides a refreshing collection of essays- from both sides of the fence- on the many philosophical facets of pot ingestion...HIGH TIMES associate publisher Rick Cusick writes in the foreword: While I personally believe that legalizing cannabis would encourage a more civilized society, I also recognize that reasonable people can disagree. That is why this book is so timely and important. There are overblown claims on both sides of the equation and we need to have the more disciplined discourse that philosophy provides. (HIGH TIMES, February 2011) Their newest release Cannabis-Philosophy for Everyone aims to bridge the world of academia, as it relates to cannabis, with the interests and concerns of those on the outside. Contributors include international scholars in the fields of philosophy, psychology, sociology, law, pharmacology, psychotherapy, and medicine as well as non-academics associated with the cultivation, distribution, and sale of cannabis. For those looking for a thought-provoking, heady read, find out more about this book at www.wiley.com. (Nug Magazine, November 2010) The book is both high- and low-brow and is sure to please undergrads searching for epiphanies while hanging out in hazy basements. (The Washington Post, November 2010) It's a serious read that should be on your bookshelf. We are going to say, especially if you are a cannabis industry / business owner; this book will help you to understand your product and the people that love it so that you can apply what you've learned in philosophy class to the real world in a way that will boost your brand..
