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.
