Marijuana Politics

Monday, 4 November 2013 | A Public Affair

If marijuana is safer, then why do we punish adults for making the rational and safer choice to use marijuana instead of alcohol? What are the latest updates on marijuana politics?

On Monday November 4th, our host John Quinlan discussed marijuana politics with one of the authors of “Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink?” Paul Armentano.

Marijuana Is Safer provides an introduction to the cannabis plant and its effects on the user, debunks some of the government’s most frequently cited marijuana myths, and, most importantly, provides persuasive arguments and talking points for the millions of Americans who want to advance the cause of marijuana-policy reform and educate friends, family, coworkers, elected officials, and, of course, future voters.- Chelsea Green Publishing
