So to get started I will list the books that I think everyone should own, Amazon (used);
1.) Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink?, Author: Steve Fox. A great book to use when debating with people why we need to reform Cannabis.
2.) Smoke and Mirrors : The War on Drugs and the Politics of Failure, Author: Dan Baum. Shows how the War on Drugs was set up and also shows what our Politicians really are.
3.) Buzzed: The Straight Facts About the Most Used and Abused Drugs from Alcohol to Ecstasy, Third Edition (Buzzed), Author: Cynthia Kuhn. Everyone should know a little bit about every drug.
4.) Spliffs : A Celebration of Cannabis Culture, Author: Nick Jones. Just an easy read for the beginner.
5.) Weed: 420 Things You Didn't Know (or Remember) about Cannabis, Authoer: I.M. Stoned. Just another easy read but a little more detailed.
6.) Pot Culture: The A-Z Guide to Stoner Language and Life, Author: Shirley Halperin. Pretty much covers all of the pop culture aspect of Cannabis.
7.) Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History, Author: Penny M, Ph.D Le Couteur. Pretty much shows why Cannabis was made Illegal in the 1930s.
For the books you need to read but not own, (Borrow from a library);
1.) Reefer Madness : Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market, Author: Eric Schlosser. Only a 3rd of the book is about Cannabis so it's really just a quick read with a good bit of info.
2.) Bad Trip : How the War Against Drugs is Destroying America, Author: Joel Miller. Should inspire you to really get up and get active.
3.) High Society: How Substance Abuse Ravages America and What to Do About It, Author: Joseph A. Califano Jr. Has good ideas and good information.
4.) Marijuana for Dopes, Author: Joseph Romain. Basic book for people who want to know a little bit of the history of cannabis.
There are more books out there, these are just some of the books I have read that are worth telling others to read. Hope it was insightful.
