Readers will delight in the historical as well as the scientific focus brought to life by Grinspoon, whose roots and professional experience provide a unique and fascinating perspective. In fact from 1995 to 2019, people between the ages of 16 and 59 have gone from 23% of the population to just under 32% of the population who have tried it. The UK government has persisted with prohibition policies which have not reduced the consumption of cannabis. Definitely one to add to the library if you haven’t already – and the latest in a series of books from Professor Nutt, including ‘Drugs Without The Hot Air’ that have become compulsory reading for those involved in drug policy reform circles. Nevertheless, legal cannabidiol-containing oils, food and drinks are increasingly common on pharmacy and retail shelves ( see the approved list).

Whole genome analysis shows that the genes for cannabis use are the same for risk overdose psychosis,” he says. Professor Nutt is much more interested in the medical uses and the harm that is being done to many UK citizens through the establishment's over-cautious approach. With the benefit of 30+ years as a leading neuroscientist and pharmacologist, David Nutt here reaches a lay audience with straight science in an accessible manner. Steeped in a deep pharmacological understanding of cannabis and aided by up-to-date analysis of scientific cannabis-related studies, Seeing through the Smoke amplifies a voice trusted by both sides of the ongoing debate about functional and responsible cannabis policies post-prohibition. Neatly divided into sections and chapters, the structure flows well and allows for the reader to focus on the sections of most use or interest to them.

Nutt obviously has skin in the game in terms of criticising the records of the Blair and Brown governments. He is quoted frequently in the national media, in such venues as People, the New York Times, New York Magazine, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Globe. A Serving of Crime with a Difference - You May Just Discover Something Unique, Different, or Unusual in These 20 Crime Novels.

Yet people in numerous countries, including the US, Holland, Belgium and Germany, can access medical marijuana, while several states across the US have legalised recreational cannabis. And yet people are taking more drugs than at any other time in history and traffickers and drug pushers want this war to continue because they are making trillions of dollars.

Moving through an illuminating tour of the social history and the medical science behind cannabis, Grinspoon unpacks the layers of disinformation left by a sordid history of government propaganda, racial suppression, and indifference from the medical community to answer questions like:Is cannabis addictive? In terms of content, the book makes a compelling argument in favour of reassessing the centrality of ‘gold standard’ RCTs (Randomised Controlled Trials) when it comes to the development of new medicines and treatments.By focusing on the most critical purported harms--driving, pregnancy, addictiveness, memory--and by focusing on the most commonly cited medical benefits--relieving chronic pain, sleep, anxiety, PTSD, autism, and cancer--Seeing Through the Smoke will help patients, parents, doctors, health experts, regulators, and politicians move beyond biased perceptions and arrive at a shared reality towards cannabis. Grinspoon’s Harvard Health articles have reached tens of millions of readers, have been widely referenced in the national media, and have been cited in congressional testimony. By making this relatively harmless drug illegal, we are criminalising millions as well as giving money to organised crime.

A really interesting time to revisit this topic as we’ve now had a few years of several countries trialling significant reductions in prohibitionist approaches to cannabis. It shouldn't be shocking to learn its legal status in the UK (and other countries) has been decided by personal opinions of lawmakers and propaganda more than medical science. On the science side – the book makes complex scientific points in an accessible manner, the explanations of the entourage effect, and the way that THC and CBD form a natural complementary see-saw, counteracting the effects of one-another, were particularly interesting. He also lecturers widely to the public as well as to the scientific and medical communities; he has presented three time at the Cheltenham Science Festival and several times for Cafe Scientifiques.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Americans have spent more on this than anything else to stop Pablo Escobar and yet he's managed to flood the USA with 80 tons of cocaine every month. Biography: David Nutt is Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology and director of the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit in the Division of Brain Sciences at Imperial College, London. His writing has been published in The Nation, the Los Angeles Times and Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics. Cannabidiol accounts for up to 40 per cent of the plant extract and does not cause the euphoria induced by THC.
