For many centuries patients and physicians have found marihuana to be a highly effective medicine. This drug, outlawed for more than fifty years in the United States, provides relief from nausea, pain, and muscle spasms, and alleviates symptoms of glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, AIDS, migraine, and other debilitating ailments. Yet the U.S. government grants only twelve patients in the entire country the right to use marihuana medically, and permits even that with great reluctance. In this important book, Dr. Lester Grinspoon and James B. Bakalar draw on twenty years of research to describe the medical benefits of marihuana, explain why it has been forbidden, and argue that full legalization is necessary to make it available to all patients who need it
