Smoke Signals

You can be prosecuted for consuming it and selling it is illegal. And yet millions of people indulge in cannabis. What are the risks of this soft drug? What are its opportunities and uses?
The authors of the book set themselves the task of informing readers comprehensively, colourfully and realistically about cannabis, avoiding the tendency to be either negligent or alarmist. They explain the effects and side-effects and the long-term consequences of consumption. Looking at authentic examples of the everyday life of cannabis users and their relatives, we are shown how dependency begins and how risks can be detected at an early stage.

They describe the significance of drugs in our culture, the history of cannabis consumption, its use in medicine, its role as a raw material, and they look at how other countries deal with the most important question of all: should cannabis be legalised?
