Smart new book for smart new patients Feb. 19 2012
By Jimmers - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Medical Marijuana - 101 gives an excellent introduction for people who want to know about medical cannabis. It's an easy read, laid out with brief responses to questions set up in logical topics. Useful information helps readers make smart choices about using cannabis.

The authors have world-class backgrounds. Ed Rosenthal is a horticulturist with 30 years of professional experience with the biology and genetics of cannabis. It's obvious in the sections describing how cannabis works and the different types of cannabis. Mickey Martin is an activist with expertise in legal and socio-economic issues, a big concern for the medical marijuana user. Dr. Carter, a medical specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, has researched the benefits of cannabis in managing degenerative neurological diseases, which has lead to its acceptance as a valid medicinal choice.

It's clear the book's concerns go well beyond medical issues to the impact of cannabis on the overall well being of people in distress. Throughout the book are short pieces written by individuals with different medical conditions, giving their stories on the choices they made in dealing with life-changing conditions.

This book describes how access to current, medically accurate information on cannabis remains critical. Decades of prejudice by our government about cannabis research led to public ignorance about current information on nearly every important social, scientific, or medical development. No doubt this ignorance contributed to numerous, widely held misconceptions about cannabis among physicians, and hampered its acceptance by the medical community.

I think Medical Marijuana-101 is the best single source of medically accurate information to help people learn about conditions that respond well to cannabis, the ways it can be consumed, and to compare its safety with a broad range of prescription drugs and other agents used to relieve pain.

The Real Deal From Knowledgeable Insiders Feb. 18 2012
By Steve Elliott - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to learn the basics about the medical marijuana -- as a medicine and as an industry -- from a mostly California-centric perspective, this book is a great place to do it.

Mickey Martin of Oakland is a fixture on the California medical marijuana scene, and has been an outspoken and stalwart defender of both the rights of medicinal cannabis patients and providers, and of the need for full legalization.

San Francisco-based Ed Rosenthal, of course, is a legend as the Guru of Ganja, having written some of the most popular marijuana cultivation guides on the market.

Dr. Gregory Carter of the University of Washington adds a valuable medical perspective, from a position of knowledge as co-author of the excellent Marijuana Medical Handbook back in 2008. Dr. Carter has given valuable pro-bono expert-witness testimony at dozens of medical marijuana trials, and he also co-authored the first two peer-reviewed scientific articles on the dosing of medicinal cannabis patients.

Great book for beginners! Jan. 29 2012
By AEIOUY - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book to give to someone considering medical cannabis but who isn't sure about it. Every aspect from usage, effects, applications and the law are covered clearly, concisely and briefly.

Well written!

Medical Marijuana 101 Jan. 21 2012
By mimi726 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great starter book. Medical cannabis is a developing industry and more and more states are passing legislation. I agree with the other reviewer that there are more in depth books but a book like this is a perfect read for the average person who wants to learn more without being overwhelmed by too many complexities. It's like the Medical Marijuana for Dummies!!!! Good read and highly recommend....

Overpriced Jan. 12 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like to read as much about maryjane as possible. This book was ok. It's about 1/5 the size of a normal book and doesn't really bring anything new to the table. Considering the price I really expected much more. There are a lot of other books out there that are more informative and cost less money. If you only own 5 books on marijuana, this should not be one of them.

Update: As was pointed out to me, this book is for someone that really doesn't know much if anything about Medical marijuana and it does say 101 in the title, so my bad. I just expected more. I think it may be the size of the book that upset me the most. It does contain a lot of useful information, nothing about growing, which is something I would expect from a book on medical marijuana, since you can't get it at a pharmacy. Anyway, if you are looking for a book that will explain the basics of medical marijuana, then this is the book for you.
