Synopsis: In Marijuana: Not Guilty As Charged, Ford definitely examines and debunks each myth about marijuana, presenting facts based on meticulous studies. In a candid and common-sense tone, this book informs readers on the current debate over marijuana: its medicinal value, as well as it recreational, creative, and other uses. Testimonials from people with cancer (including the author himself), AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, paraplegia, migraines, and other debilitating conditions offer convincing evidence of marijuana's medical relief. If marijuana is relatively harmless, why is it illegal? David Ford explains how the federal government created a systematic campaign of deception that began in the 1930's. Why were U.S. legislators, professionals and the public duped into outlawing this relatively harmless plant---along with hemp, it's versatile NON-INTOXICATING cousin? Why was marijuana placed in the same category as heroin: "too dangerous to prescribe by a physician"? Was it to protect multinational corporations from a plant that cannot be patented? From fifty years of research and interviews with hundreds of marijuana users, the author offers compelling arguments why marijuana should never have been illegal. The government is aware that marijuana never resulted in even one documented toxicity-related death and IS medicine. In 1966, the voters of California and Arizona saw through the malicious propaganda and approved marijuana for medical purposes. This has fanned the fire of controversy and incited the Drug Enforcement Administration to threaten legal action against doctors who recommend marijuana to ease the suffering of the ill and dying. Vivid accounts depict some of the atrocities, including death by law enforcement officers, the rape of inmates including mothers while in prison, and other injustices that accompany the counterproductive war on drugs.
From the Publisher: Marijuana: Not Guilty as Charged, is a reference book that has been sought internationally. It presents the history of cannabis throughout the world, and exposes the lies from the federal government that have continued for more than sixty years. They continue to charge that marijuana is too dangerous to prescribe. It is still a Schedule 1 drug with heroin.
Author David R. Ford interviewed more than 300 medical and social users of marijuana for the writing of this outstanding hard cover book. If the teens that he interviewed on his popular radio show, JUNIOR JAMBOREE, when he was in high school and college, the number would exceed thousands of young and adult users of this the worlds least harmful drug. Ford lived in Hawaii for 39 years. Many of them were working for the CBS television affiliate in Hawaii. There he interviewed nationally recognized celebrities, as well as users of marijuana. Dozen's of users stories are included in this easy to read book.
