From agriculture to big business, from medicine to politics, The Cigarette Century is the definitive account of how smoking came to be so deeply implicated in our culture, science, policy, and law. No product has been so heavily promoted or has become so deeply entrenched in American consciousness. The Cigarette Century shows in striking detail how one ephemeral (and largely useless) product came to play such a dominant role in so many aspects of our lives—and deaths.  This book should be required reading for every grade 12 high school student. 

In Sidetracked by Schizophrenia, Charlotte documents her son’s encounters with the many medications and difficult life situations that come as part of living with this disease. It covers the trials and errors, the failures, the partial successes, the side effects, the exciting movement toward more and more effective treatments, and the hope for living a normal life medication free. The book speaks to family members who are, or have been there and to professionals who are called on to make judgments about what regimen may be most effective for their patients. It encourages the reader to keep an open mind about the body’s capacity to heal itself when given the right balance

Inspired by true events.Busted for smoking pot, suburbanite college-bound Danny is incredulous when forced to spend the night in jail. He’s repulsed by his cellmate, a homeless and mentally ill drug addict who keeps him awake all night with his delusional rants. By morning Danny’s world is completely upended. A Night In Jail is a grim page-turner with a staggering ending.  Order A Night In Jail - Book reviews welcome. 

A collection of esays and articles from parties to the opposition movement to the increase availability and access of cannabis. Twenty plus individuals come together in this publication to share their thoughts, the reputable science and the facts that support their central argument which is that legalization would increase use by youth and pose risks that are not worth taking. The move to advance legalization is addressed from a pivotal question to the debate: How do we reduce the use of marijuana by youth ? This important question is the priority facing policy and decision makers given the solid science on the consequences of use by a youth population.. Individuals contributing to this work come from the world of academia, the professions of law, medicine and public health and law enforcement along with individuals and advocates associated with public health initiatives to fight the commercialization of marijuana in the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia.

The historical record and the worldwide fluctuation in marijuana use rates by minors clearly establishes that kids do not just fall into drug use as an inevitable rite of passage. Kids are sold on drug use in specific cultures at various times. The Pied Pipers of Pot reveals how marijuana products have been pushed on the youth sector in recent years through a process of normalization and acceptance. The author argues that kids are no match for the aggressive and emerging marijuana industry and that the key to effective drug prevention is to curtail those that stand to prosper, economically or politically by advancing the pro-pot position.

Often it is difficult for parents to recognize when their child is abusing alcohol, using illegal drugs, or in trouble with other substances that are hazardous to their health, safety, and wellbeing. Clearing the Hazeis a guide designed to help parents determine whether their child may have a substance problem and, if so, how to begin to address it. The book includes the voices and insight of experts in substance abuse counseling, young people in recovery, and parents who have lived the nightmare of adolescent addiction. The book moves readers through an overview of adolescent brain development, the warning signs of drug use and addiction, treatment options, what families should expect of therapy, the basics of productive communication, and the difficulties of dealing lovingly with addicted teens. The authors encourage families entering the 12th step of “giving back” to consider advocacy for smarter public policies surrounding drug access and addiction treatment. They also provide a list of resources parents may find useful. A necessary resource for every community, this book will help parents, teachers, friends, and others help kids who need help.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

An eye-opening account from an award-winning author and former New York Times reporter reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug—facts many people have ignored as Canada and a number of USA States have moved to legalize marijuana for both medical and non-medical purposes.

Legalization has been built on a massive propaganda campaign that was decades in the making.  In this meticulously reported book, Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, explodes this subverted campaign and the myths that have been at its core.  

Berenson’s reporting sticks to the facts, and they are devastating. This is a very important book that all parents, educators, policy makers and the electorate need to read.
