About this title


Never before has a highly successful person courageously revealed his use of marijuana for over fifty-five years. Between stories that alternately tear at your heart and leave you helpless with laughter, author Ford uses evidence gathered over a lifetime to shred anti-marijuana propaganda. He shares his encounters with thousands who have found that grass is a miracle plant, yet understandably fear admitting it. In this book, the author holds back nothing: exciting sexual adventures, booming business enterprises, and tireless efforts to encourage internationally respected people to open the closet door and acknowledge their own use of cannabis medically, for fun, and for sex. This book includes hundreds of pages of breathtaking adventures, including interviews with world famous people, many of whom became Dave’s friends, including Bing Crosby.

From the Publisher:

Why We Published Good Medicine, Great Sex!

Dave Ford has spent much of the last 60 years amassing evidence about marijuana and the federal government's heartless and relentless war against it. In Marijuana: Not Guilty As Charged he took apart the government's case against cannabis, piece by preposterous piece. In Good Medicine, Great Sex! he tells his own fascinating story, of how marijuana primed his creativity in a variety of enterprises, how it relieved the pain of loss and illness, how it enhanced an already exciting and rewarding life.

He also tells the stories of other cannabis users: of battered spouses finding that their mates stopped beating them when they switched from alcohol to pot, of artists finding that grass expands their creativity, of lovers finding that it enhances their pleasure and sense of intimacy, of ordinary people finding hangover-free relaxation at the end of a hard day's work.

He also tells us darker stories, of harmless people branded felons for the rest of their lives, of homes and life savings ripped away, of children torn from their parents' arms, of loving couples divorced, of careers ended or aborted before they've begun, of lives wasted, lives lost.

Good Medicine, Great Sex! is Dave's life story... but he tells it for Ralph Seely, who died in needless anguish, for Dennis Hunter, who faces a long prison sentence for the crime of compassion, for Robin Pratt, who was shot to death by a SWAT team in a raid that was based on drug-related allegations that turned out to be baseless - and he tells it for Carl Sagan, and Bing Crosby, and many other productive people, famous and ordinary, who have used pot happily all their adult lives, yet fear to admit it - and, finally, for you, and anyone else who wants to know: Why has this war gone on for so long, and how we can bring about peace?

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
