Reefer Sanity

Publisher: Beaufort Books

Newly revised and updated in order to continue debunking the myths as they arise, Reefer Sanity offers a solution to the debate that steers clear of policy extremes; challenging our assumptions and shifting the emphasis to education, intervention, and common sense.

Kevin Sabet, a former Senior Advisor in President Obama’s drug policy office, conscientiously examines the socio-economic consequences of marijuana policies, the ideological underpinnings confusing the issues at hand, and the intractable “myths” concerning marijuana that disallow for successful civic progress.  Using meticulous and plentiful research, Sabet demonstrates how the dichotomous, oppositional stances taken in the marijuana debate—“legalization” on the one hand, “incarceration” on the other—are both flawed and merely serve to hinder our ability to find better possible solutions.  

There are other, smarter methods for reform than either full-fledged legalization or tactless incarceration, and before committing ourselves to either, such possibilities should be brought to public awareness. It is high time we all begin thinking sanely about marijuana.

Hidden Truths Stripped From the National Dialogue

Hidden Truths Stripped From the National Dialogue

by Herschensohn, Bruce

Bruce Herschensohn challenges the same old beliefs most often heard in the media and read in the textbooks. Is Afghanistan really the longest war in the history of the United States? Was Hong Kong given back to the People’s Republic of China in 1997 because of the lease signed by Great Britain in 1898? Herschensohn convinces us with evidence that the answer to both questions is no...
