Keep Off the Grass is a scientific inquiry into the scientific effects of marijuana. Marijuana, like most drugs ingested by man, gives the user the impression that his senses are enhanced, when in fact they have been distorted and impaired. This book is composed of 27 chapters, and starts with a brief introduction to the history of marijuana, the properties of its chemical components, called cannabinoids, and its widespread use and abuse. The succeeding chapters deal with the first scientific meetings on marijuana, social impact of marijuana, and its widespread use in some countries, such as i

Marihuana in science and medicine by Gabriel G Nahas( Book )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Marihuana and Medicine, leading physicians and scientists from around the world critically review the pharmacological and molecular basis of the therapeutic properties of marihuana and its active ingredient, THC. They detail the broad array of marihuana's effects on brain function, the immune system, male and female reproductive function, and cardiac and pulmonary function, as well as evaluate its clinical applications in psychiatry, glaucoma, pain management, cancer chemotherapy, and AIDS treatment. Their work indicates that marihuana impairs brain and reproductive function, is harmful to the immune system, is more damaging when smoked to the lung than tobacco smoke, and is not an effective, medically acceptable therapeutic vehicle for THC. The editors have also included key historical material tracing the controversial history of marihuana in science and medicine over the centuries. Marihuana and Medicine's report of the latest findings on the pharmacological, pharmacodynamic, and molecular mechanisms of marihuana will be essential reading for clinicians, psychiatrists, pharmacologists, policy makers, health-care workers, and attorneys
