A well written, concise holistic explanation of the physical, psychological & spiritual benefits to be derived from the employment of marijuana. This book offers proof that marijuana balances the Autonomic Nervous System which is the goal for health and consciousness in Yoga Science. The Benefits of Mairjuana bridges the gap between the ancient Eastern wisdom - so popular in contemporary self-help circles - and today's extensive science. According to the reviews: "It's the sort of book you can dip into at random, absorbing nonconsecutive sections at your leisure." The final edition of the book includes a thorough explanation of how marijuana helps the victims of PTSD and Alzheimer's Disease and presents an impressive argument for the dire need of the consciousness-raising features of marijuana for stress reduction, health and collectively, for survival. According to the former Director of NORML, "one of the most well written, comprehensive analysis of marijuana around today."
