Summary
"There are few sources of objective, scientifically sound advice for people who could benefit from the use of medicinal marijuana. Most books about marijuana and medicine simply attempt to promote the views of advocates or opponents. To fill the gap between these extremes, authors Alison Mack and Janet Joy have extracted critical findings from a recent Institute of Medicine study on this important issue, interpreting them for a general audience." "Marijuana as Medicine? provides patients - and the people who care for them - with a foundation for making decisions about their own health care. Empowering, enlightening, and objective, it will be a valuable tool for making informed health care decisions."--BOOK JACKET
