This book tells three stories at the same time: the life of Keith Stroup (founder of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), the story of NORML’s history, and the story of the last 45 years of marijuana policy. As you soon discover, the three stories are at times inseparable.

And the stories! This is a book full of anecdotes.

 

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Martin A. Lee, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational and Scientific

By: Saturday September 1, 2012 1:59 pm

Martin A. Lee’s latest book, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical Recreational and Scientific reflects his skills as a researcher, especially in the historical sections and his analysis of scientific and medical research. The copy is dense and packed with detail, frequently footnoted for those readers who may be skeptical of his scientific claims. If most Americans would take the time to read this book, it would certainly put the topic of legalizing marijuana in some helpful historical context, and it might help convince those who oppose marijuana legalization that they should reconsider their opposition.
