In The Cannabis Manifesto: A New Paradigm for Wellness (On Sale: September 22, 2015) Steve DeAngelo, Executive Director of Harborside Health Centers—the national “gold standard” medical cannabis dispensary, and the nation’s largest—makes a compelling case for the legalization of marijuana and expands the dialogue on how cannabis can be part of an entire wellness lifestyle choice. Based on his experience educating and providing services to tens of thousands of patients at Harborside, DeAngelo’s argument begins with the controversial premise that there is no such thing as recreational cannabis use. As a thought leader, pioneer and veteran in the cannabis reform movement, DeAngelo has worked for decades to dispel the myths and stigmas surrounding cannabis, and to promote the positive science that is emerging about it. DeAngelo’s Manifesto explores the history of cannabis as a medicine, the devastating consequences of its prohibition, and its future as a regulated consumer product. This engaging primer on the past, present, and future of cannabis will challenge readers to rethink everything they thought they knew about the plant, while exploring and defending its responsible use.
