I Smoke Pot With My Family

In her revealing book I Smoke Pot with My Family, 85-year-old Ruth Bergner speaks out about the valuable and positive experiences she began having with just one puff of marijuana. 'Try it so you know what the hell you are talking about," her valedictorian son challenged in 1970. Ruthie and her husband were surprised to discover that, contrary to what they 'knew" about pot, the drug actually enhanced many areas of their lives instead of interfering. Excited about what she was experiencing, she began to write a book. Reluctant and fearful of what the expos could do to her family's name, she kept it hidden beneath her bathroom sink. Now, after more than thirty years of personal experience and secrecy, Bergner hopes to make an important contribution to the world by sharing her story. She insists that we control the drug; it doesn't control us. She writes that when used intelligently and responsibly, marijuana can promote comfortable intimacy, improve family relationships, dissipate anger and judgment, temporarily erase sexual hang-ups, make us less defensive, and give us a fresh perspective on life. Bergner wants marijuana reclassified from the 'bad drug" category to the 'good drug" category. She calls on other respectable people who smoke pot to stand up, speak out and smoke responsibly with her. 'Bergner's honesty.is one more step up the ladder to removing the lid of misinformation and dishonesty about (marijuana). She is, indeed, one brave pioneer."-Wayne B. Whitmarsh, Medicinal Cannabis/Industrial Hemp Advocate '(Bergner's) coming out makes it easier for the next person to do the same."-Keith Stroup, Founder of NORML

Cannabis consumption, commerce, and control in global history, from the nineteenth century to the present day. This book gathers together authors from the new wave of cannabis histories that has emerged in recent decades. It offers case studies from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East. It does so to trace a global history of the plant and its preparations, arguing that Western colonialism shaped and disseminated ideas in the nineteenth century that came to drive the international control regimes of the twentieth. More recently, the emergence of commercial interests in cannabis has been central to the challenges that have undermined that cannabis consensus. Throughout, the determination of people around the world to consume substances made from the plant has defied efforts to stamp them out and often transformed the politics and cultures of using them. These texts also suggest that globalization might have a cannabis history. The migration of consumers, the clandestine networks established to supply them, and international cooperation on control may have driven much of the interconnectedness that is a key feature of the contemporary world.

A 5-year investigation of the implementation of the world’s first fully regulated cannabis market for pleasure in Colorado Kind words for Regulating Cannabis "This book clearly demonstrates authority in the field of international drug policy and draws predominantly on the latest evidence in doing so. It is a substantial contribution to an emerging policy issue with a plethora of new knowledge displayed throughout. Overall, I found this to be a vital addition to the canon of knowledge regarding cannabis policy change" Dr Mark Monaghan Head of the Department of Social Policy, Sociology and Criminology University of Birmingham “The author has broadened the understanding of cannabis regulation when it comes to conflicts between consumer protection, private profit, and public health. He has successfully applied and enriched several theoretical concepts in the context of cannabis legalization, especially when it comes to ‘the elephant in the room’ - the wellness potential of cannabis on legal markets” Vendula Belackova, PhD Drug Policy Researcher & Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the Social Policy Research Centre, University of New South Wales Contents at a glance At a time when cannabis legalisation is spreading across an increasing number of jurisdictions globally, this book cuts across the noise and presents a factual account of issues faced by regulators in the real-world context of Colorado. It can be read as an evidence-based handbook for regulators and should be a first port of call for anyone interested in the legalisation of cannabis. In January 2014, Colorado implemented a commercial cannabis market for pleasure - the first jurisdiction globally to implement a regulated, adult-use cannabis supply chain from seed-to-sale. It was reported as an historic occasion that presaged a grand social and economic experiment in drug legalisation. Including analysis of hundreds of pages of government documents, almost 1000 media articles, and interviews in the field with over 30 senior government officials, industry executives, and front-line public health representatives, this book is the definitive account of real-world cannabis policy implementation. The cannabis academic public health literature is examined prodigiously including its potential for harm and benefit together with alternative regulatory approaches. The book also features a number of papers published in academic journals based on the PhD research of the author. The commodification of cannabis vs the craft approach together with the entanglement of the medical and recreational markets are two of many topical themes discussed in detail. Multiple recommendations relevant for other jurisdictions considering the legalisation of cannabis are presented. Recognising the limitations of harm reduction approaches that cannot conceptually conceive beneficial aspects of cannabis consumption, a new framework, the spectrum of wellness is proposed as an alternative in Appendix 1 of the book.

Social justice is a concept we take for granted. We assume that it means using state structures to ensure equality and fairness. But is that true? Or, do state structures of social order actually inhibit creativity, freedom, social welfare, and belonging? This collection broadens the boundaries of the ways we think about what constitutes criminality and interrogates issues of social justice and power in new, innovative and critical ways. The essays examine a wide variety of themes, including the deconstruction of concepts of freedom and equality, notions of criminality and deviance, state regulation of social order, and various aspects of feminist criminology.
