Unlike the majority of books recently published on marijuana, which
focus on prevalence, legality, and therapeutic utility, Marijuana and Madness takes a rigorous scientific look at the relationship
of marijuana to cognition and mental illness. It provides a contemporary appraisal
of cannabis research that neuroscientists and clinicians will find invaluable.
While conferring legitimacy, the density and detail of information place the
book beyond the scope of the nonmedical reader.
