Handy and to the point, The Little Black Book of Marijuana gives you "the dope" on pot, from possible side effects and risks to medical uses and their efficacy. Learn about cannabis history and the issues around its legalization. Includes full-color photos of marijuana varieties.

"From cover to cover, The Little Black Book of Marijuana delivers exactly what it promises: An easy-to-read, well-researched informatively entertaining 'essential guide to the world of cannabis'....[I]f a cannabis fan was forced to choose one piece of weed-themed literature to bring with him or her to a deserted island (or even just on a long plane ride), it should probably be this one." --Seattle Weekly Blog

"Calling Steve Elliott an accomplished journalist in the fields of drug policy reform and medical cannabis would be a significant understatement....[A]s far as broad-spectrum introductions go you’d be hard-pressed to find better." --4Evergreen Group
