Irrweg Cannabispolitik Das Verbot von Cannabis ist ein kollektiver Irrweg Der Autor vertritt die These, dass der Konsum von Cannabis keinen ernsthaften Schaden nach sich zieht - weder körperlich noch seelisch, weder akut noch chronisch. Das Cannabis-Verbot könne daher nicht durch medizinische Argumente gestützt werden. - Opioide, Amphetamine, Benzodiazepine sind viel gefährlichere Drogen und werden massenhaft medizinisch verwendet. - schlechte Datenlage: Da muss der Staat die nötigen Studien in Auftrag geben. Die Pharma-Industrie hat keinerlei Interesse an diesen Wirkstoffen, weil man damit kein Geld verdienen kann. Heinz Duthel, Master in Philosophy, Author of 30 international published books and photo reportages

Stiriss—"I co-founded and lived thirteen years in America´s biggest commune not undercover but as a full-fledged member of the hippie collective, living the dream, "saving the world." The idea of writing about the experience came after when I realized the importance of reporting behind-the-scenes, everyday observations of one of the most amazing social experiments to come out of that far-out era."
