Gr 9 Up—With much talk surrounding marijuana legalization in the United States, this informative series comes at just the right time. Instead of providing answers to the debate, the authors present current, credible information from numerous studies and reputable research, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions. With a highly international focus, information and perspectives on marijuana use, research, public opinion, and current levels of legalization are presented from numerous cultures around the globe. The biochemistry of both medical and recreational use is explained. Successful medicinal uses as well as the risks, side effects, and addictive properties of recreational use are discussed. Career opportunities in this burgeoning industry are also looked at in great depth. One unique feature of this series is educational videos, scannable by QR codes, that appear throughout, adding another element of support to the subject.
VERDICT Thorough and balanced, this eye-opening account of a timely topic is an essential purchase.
