Reviews from Amazon:

A valuable look at the history of one of the oldest forms of human inebriation. Covering religious, industrial as well as cultural usage throughout the world. Famous writers, infamous celebrities and barking mad politicians who have been associated with this herb either pro or anti are mentioned. It is not a piece of pro-dope propaganda but a genuine study of its subject, although reading about US experts who testified to congress that they had smoked grass and turned into a bat does make you wonder at times.
