9780520275430: Weed Land: Inside America's Marijuana Epicenter and How Pot Went Legit
Críticas:

"With journalistic bravura, Sacramento Bee reporter Hecht captures California's odyssey to legalize marijuana with immediacy, personality, and objectivity... Hecht's cautionary and deftly written account is an animated examination of how too much, too soon, almost doomed a movement." Publishers Weekly 20140217 "In the right hands, nonfiction can be more compelling than fiction... [Hecht] presents a definitive, dramatic chronology of pot and the people who research it, grow it, sell it, use it and regulate it." -- Allen Pierleoni Sacramento Bee 20140303 "Peter Hecht, a journalist at The Sacramento Bee, charts the evolution of California's medical marijuana law, the first in the nation." -- Jerome Groopman New York Review of Books 20140220 "A comprehensive and compelling report on the weed wars still raging across the country." Kirkus Reviews 20140316

Reseña del editor:

Early in the morning of September 5, 2002, camouflaged and heavily armed Drug Enforcement Administration agents descended on a terraced marijuana garden -- a medicinal and spiritual refuge for the sick and dying. The DEA raid on the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana, a sanctuary for severely ill patients who were using marijuana as medicine, stirs the opening of Weed Land, an up-close journalistic narrative that chronicles a transformative epoch for marijuana in America. Moving from the passage of California's Proposition 215, the nation's first medical marijuana law, through law enforcement raids and the emergence of a lucrative cannabis industry, Weed Land reveals the changing political, legal, economic, and social dynamics of pot. It offers an independent, meticulously reported account of the clashes and contradictions of a burgeoning California cannabis culture that stoked pot liberalization elsewhere, leading to marijuana legalization votes in Colorado and Washington. Written by Peter Hecht, an award-winning journalist from The Sacramento Bee, Weed Land takes readers into the laboratories of researchers who challenged federal drug policy with clinical studies revealing the medical benefits of cannabis. It also explores an exploding marijuana marketplace that pitches compassionate healing with the pure joy of pot. And it takes readers inside the law enforcement backlash -- and unfolding consequences -- of a federal crackdown on America's largest marijuana economy.
