Publisher's Summary

The debate on the status and legality of cannabis continues to gain momentum. Here, personal anecdotes combined with academic and scientific reports combine to sharpen some of the fascinating philosophical issues associated with cannabis use. This book:

A frank, professionally informed, and playful discussion of cannabis usage in relation to philosophical inquiry
Considers the meaning of a high, the morality of smoking marijuana for pleasure, the slippery slope to more dangerous drugs, and the human drive to alter our consciousness
Not only incorporates contributions from philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, and legal, pharmacological, and medical experts, but also non-academics associated with the cultivation, distribution, and sale of cannabis
Brings together an international team of writers from the United States, Canada, UK, Finland, Switzerland, South Africa, and New Zealand

More of a documentary than I expected.

I don't know what I was expecting when I bought this book. I didn't really enjoy it. If you're into the whole legalization politics movement you might appreciate it more.

Horrible Narration, Okay Story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this audio book to a friend. I might recommend the book itself.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story was okay. Some interesting new thoughts and considerations. My complaints are mostly with the narrator.

What didn’t you like about Erik Davies’s performance?

I'm not sure if he thought he had to slow it down for stoners or what. I've heard him on other recordings and he was fine, but I could barely listen to him on this recording. It becomes bearable once I adjust the speed to 1.25, but with his tone I expected him to say, "Duuude" after every sentence.

Do you think Cannabis - Philosophy for Everyone needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. Though I'm interested in the topic, I don't think I'd buy a follow-up book by this author (and definitely not from this narrator).
