Marijuana is Safer: Argues Former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, September, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
When you pick up a book touting marijuana as a safer recreational alternative to alcohol, I imagine the last thing you are expecting is a foreword from the former chief of police of a major U.S. city. Well, if you’re surprised, I guess we are off to a good start. You see, the goal of this book—and the purpose of this foreword—is to encourage you (fan and foe alike) to reassess the way you think about marijuana.
In pages that follow, you will find objective comparisons of marijuana and alcohol. You will learn about the ways in which the federal government and other influential institutions have maintained marijuana prohibition while simultaneously conspiring to turn public opinion against its use. And you will be exposed to a plethora of statistics quantifying the damage caused by alcohol use in our society. Steve, Paul, and Mason have done a terrific job of presenting all of this information in an objective, compelling, and thoughtful manner. I am certain, whatever you may think about marijuana laws at this moment, that you will look at the issue differently by the time you reach the final chapter.

On July 1, Vermont decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana.
