This Hardcover, Limited First Edition of Going to Pot: Why the Rush to Legalize Marijuana Is Harming America has been personally Autographed by William J. Bennett.
Exclusively Made Available at PremiereCollectibles.com.
William J. Bennett, former director of the National Drug Control policy under President George H.W. Bush and bestselling author of The Book of Virtues, and co-author Robert White provide strong societal and scientific arguments against the legalization of marijuana.
Marijuana, once considered worthy of condemnation, has in recent years become a "medicine," legalized fully in four states, with others expected to follow. But the dangers are clear. According to Bennett's research, more Americans are admitted to treatment facilities for marijuana use than for any other illegal drug. Studies have shown a link between marijuana use and abnormal brain structure and development. From William Bennett comes a call-to-action for the 46 states that know better than to support full legalization, and a voice of reason for millions who have jumped on the legalization bandwagon because they haven't had access to the facts.

This book should be required reading for all teachers, parents, physicians and nurses. But especially should it be REQUIRED READING for all federal and state legislators and judges. Until you digest the well documented facts, from highly respected and vetted medical journals and researchers, of today's marijuana's HORRIFFIC side effects and addictive potential, and turn off the marijuana industry's propaganda to the contrary, you will just be "blowing smoke" to claim it is other than what it is, a Schedule 1 Narcotic / Controlled substance, defined as the class with the most addictive potential, and with the least recognized and approved medical uses. Marijuana is in the same class as LSD, Heroin, Ecstasy, and Peyote. BAD COMPANY, INDEED. This classification has not changed in decades. FOR GOOD REASON! BUY THE BOOK. READ IT. SPEAK UP. LEST THE NEXT GENERATION TRULY GOES TO POT, and some would say...... on to hell in a hand basket. -Steven Waldo Newell
An honest book about an issue that many Americans consider an non-issue. At a time when the majority of Americans believe marijuana should be legal, Bennett presents the scientific facts about pot. He also points out the expensive cannabis experiments in the Netherlands (where pot is tolerated) and in Colorado (where it is legal). It is time for a wake up call about this unsafe substance. -Catherine
