Nationally recognized marijuana-policy experts Steve Fox, Paul Armentano, and Mason Tvert compare and contrast the relative harms and legal status of the two most popular recreational substances in the world–marijuana and alcohol. Through an objective examination of the two drugs and the laws and social practices that steer people toward alcohol, the authors pose a simple yet rarely considered question: Why do we punish adults who make the rational, safer choice to use marijuana instead of alcohol?

Marijuana Is Safer reaches for a broad audience. For those unfamiliar with marijuana, it provides an introduction to the cannabis plant and its effects on the user, and debunks some of the government’s most frequently cited marijuana myths. For current and aspiring advocates of marijuana-law reform, as well as anyone else who is interested in what is becoming a major political battle, the authors spell out why the message that marijuana is safer than alcohol must be a prominent part of the public debate over legalization.

Most importantly, for the millions of Americans who want to advance the cause of marijuana-policy reform–or simply want to defend their own personal, safer choice–this book provides the talking points and detailed information needed to make persuasive arguments to friends, family, coworkers, and elected officials.

    This is one of the best books on marijuana I have read in a long time. And it has come out at the best time possible. I encourage everyone to read this book! It’s about time that a truly serious discussion is brought up about marijuana, and “Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink?”, provides enough evidence to oppose any prohibition supporter arguments. Prohibition is losing, and it should be…it’s about time!

    How can you debate that alcohol is as safe as pot?!?!, August 19, 2009
    This review is from: Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink? (Paperback)

    I read the review that someone wrote and gave this book 1 star… sure it is gonna be biased… sure a lot of headies drink… but that’s not the point of the book… the point of the book is to get out and educate the mass of people that think pot is some kind of demon that will tear out your soul and leave you an empty shell of a person… a person that will go out and rape, steal, and do whatever it is to get the herb… which.. if you know any pot smoker is entirely false… sure pot isn’t perfect… and it’s not totally safe… but you CANNOT tell me it’s not safer than drinking… I just hope people will read this book and understand that people are going to prison, losing their lives, breaking up families, tearing this nation apart for something that is FAR less harmful than alcohol… give peace a chance!
