Back Cover Info:
Four million teenagers in Canada and the United States use marijuana, a million of them daily. Yet both countries are moving toward legalization because so many of us have heard only the pro-marijuana side. This book presents the case against marijuana on an equal footing including:
• The scientific research refuting all the pro-marijuana talking points
• Why marijuana is not safe for adolescents or behind the wheel
• Why legalization would be an economic burden on society and the promise of tax revenue a mirage
• How to spot the misleading language used by pro-legalization partisans
• How the news media helped to create an epidemic of teenage use
• Why de facto decriminalization is better than legalization
• Why marijuana laws that prohibit use are good for the public health
“Dr. Gogek has a unique ability to master the complex and hotly contested material to make it understandable. His book has a strong message that our nation, including both Left and Right, needs today when most discussions of drug policy are filled with dangerous misinformation.”
