Über diesen Titel


George McMahon, afflicted with pain, spasms and nausea from the treatment of a rare terminal disease has, despite his personal trial, become one of the leading crusaders for the legalization of medical marijuana. One of only six United States citizens given the substance by the little known "Uncle Sam's Marijuana Farm," McMahon fights to bring similar relief to people suffering from such illnesses as glaucoma, cancer, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, trauma and spasms who can be helped by prescription pot. From the steps of state capitols and presenting his case before the Supreme Court, to testifying before Congress and appearing on local and national media, McMahon carries on his arduous struggle.

The recipient of the Certificate of Heroism, given to him by former first lady Nancy Reagan, now reveals his unique, courageous journey and sounds a call to arms for those who would join his ongoing battle to legalize medical marijuana. This compelling story puts a human face on a controversial, pressing national issue.

From Booklist:

As of the writing of this book, McMahon was one of seven persons in the U.S. who could smoke marijuana legally. As a person with the rare genetic disorder Nail Patella Syndrome, he participates in the federal government's Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program. Under the program's auspices, he receives 300 government-grown-and-packed joints each month. (Thanks to the redoubled war on drugs, the program no longer accepts new participants.) The herb frees him from most of the pain associated with the bone and joint deformities resulting from his disease and allows him to live a more normal life. Those 300 joints replace 400 morphine pills for him, yet medical morphine is legal and medical cannabis isn't. McMahon has made campaigning for legalization of medical marijuana his life's mission, and the book documents his dialogues with legislators and law-enforcement personnel to date. It also includes heartrending testimony from other medical marijuana users, legal and not, and the transcript of a supportive scientific study. A well thought-out argument in favor of legalizing cannabis for clinical use. Donna Chavez
