Most widely held works by James B Bakalar
Marihuana, the forbidden medicine by Lester Grinspoon( )

27 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 3,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the book consists of accounts written by patients (including one from famed scientist Stephen Jay Gould) that dramatically illustrate not only the relief provided by marihuana but also the unnecessary distress caused by the need to obtain it illegally. Grinspoon and Bakalar recount the long history of medical marihuana use, discuss the real (as opposed to fancied) potential health hazards of the drug, and analyze the social causes of the government's insistence on making outlaws of its medical users. They find that marihuana is a remarkably safe substance and that criminalizing its use is costly, ineffective, and unfair. They conclude that legalizing it for medical purposes alone would be unworkable and that it must be given the same status as alcohol - legal, with appropriate limitations, for use by adults for any purpose
