Description: There are few sources of objective, scientifically sound advice for people who could benefit from the use of medicinal marijuana. Most books about marijuana and medicine simply attempt to promote the views of advocates or opponents. To fill the gap between these extremes, authors Alison Mack and Janet Joy have extracted critical findings from a recent Institute of Medicine study on this important issue, interpreting them for a general audience.

Marijuana As Medicine? provides patients -- and the people who care for them -- with a foundation for making decisions about their own health care. This empowering book examines several key points, including:
-- Whether marijuana can actually relieve a variety of symptoms, including pain, muscle spasticity, nausea, and appetite loss.
-- The dangers of smoking marijuana, as well as the effects of its active chemical components on the immune system and on psychological health.
-- The potential use of marijuana-based medications on symptoms of AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and several other specific disorders, in comparison with existing treatments.

Intended primarily as an aid to patients and caregivers, Marijuana As Medicine? objectively presents critical information so that it can be used to make responsible health care decisions. This book will also be a valuable resource for policy makers, health care providers, patient counselors, medical faculty and students -- in short, anyone who wants to learn more about this important issue.
