KIRKUS REVIEW

Fold up The Marijuana Papers and put aside Pot. This is a concisely edited anthology that traces the use of hemp through history, includes writings while under the influence, ""high voices"" from Aldous Huxley to Allen Ginsberg, gives a complete rundown of medical opinions as to both physical and psychiatric effect, reproduces treatises on expanding consciousness, works that range from C. G. Jung to Timothy Leary and covers ""The Scene Today and the Law,"" from campus pushers to Nigerian prison cells. Objective? To expand the public consciousness of the true properties and influence of the drug and its derivatives. Don't smoke it, don't plant it, just read it.
