Marijuana. That utterly feared word. Conjuring up images of licentiousness, promiscuity, lethargic dissent, and reckless abandon. Never mind the hypocrisy of an imposed authority employing millions to wipe out alternative power structures, conquering and displacing countless natives, and justifying the suppression of civil rights for everyone but a selected few. Never mind that DEA raids on Cannabis Clubs continue even after a president, partially elected on comprehensive drug reform, stated that measures would be taken to end all attempts to close down legal dispensaries. And never mind the fact that virtually every study available depicts the plant not only as a harmless weed, but potentially the saving grace of an economy poised on the brink of collapse. It is in this climate that a beautifully short novella has come out. "How Marijuana Will Save the World," a satirical compilation of reflections on oppression, traces the Author's journey through psychological collapse at the hands of a political elite. Integrating philosophical treatises on time, ecological responsibility, magic, poetry, liberation theology, and archetypal psychology, communities of intergenerational burners will finally have a common vanguard to rally behind. In the vein of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, "How Marijuana Will Save the World" provides the next step in evolutionary leadership for the 21st century, proposing a new framework for how we may combat those most regressive forces to finally enjoy, and share, the beauty of the cosmos, detailed in this short paperback or E-Book.

Cities are frequently viewed as passive participants to state and national efforts to solve the toughest urban problems. But the evidence suggests otherwise. Cities are actively devising innovative policy solutions and they have the potential to do even more. In this volume, the authors examine current threats to communities across the U.S. and the globe. They draw on first-hand experience with, and accounts of, the crises already precipitated by climate change, population shifts, and economic inequality. This volume is distinguished, however, by its central objective of traveling beyond a description of problems and a discussion of their serious implications. Each of the thirteen chapters frame specific recommendations and guidance on the range of core capacities and interventions that 21st Century cities would be prudent to consider in mapping their immediate and future responses to these critical problems. How Cities Will Save the World brings together authors with frontline experience in the fields of city redevelopment, urban infrastructure, healthcare, planning, immigration, historic preservation, and local government administration. They not only offer their ground level view of threats caused by climate change, population shifts, and economic inequality, but they provide solution-driven narratives identifying promising innovations to help cities tackle this century’s greatest adversities.

Before Colombia became one of the world’s largest producers of cocaine in the 1980s, traffickers from the Caribbean coast partnered with American buyers in the 1970s to make the South American country the main supplier of marijuana for a booming US drug market, fueled by the US hippie counterculture. How did Colombia become central to the creation of an international drug trafficking circuit? Marijuana Boom is the story of this forgotten history. Combining deep archival research with unprecedented oral history, Lina Britto deciphers a puzzle: Why did the Colombian coffee republic, a model of Latin American representative democracy and economic modernization, transform into a drug paradise, and at what cost?

In 1916, the USDA published Bulletin No. 404, a report on using hemp hurds as a paper-making material. The bulletin proclaims that: “Without a doubt, hemp will continue to be one of the staple agricultural crops of the United States.” The report also warns that: “Our forests are being cut three times faster than they grow.” It finds that (over a 20-year period) 10,000 acres of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as 40,500 acres of trees. The test results are so favorable that USDA Bulletin #404 is printed on paper made from hemp! "The Gospel of Hemp" explains why a crop that was hailed as a "one of the staple agricultural crops of The United States" in a U.S. government report was deceptivley made essentially illegal in 1937. The time has come for America and the world to correct this deception and injustice for the future of our planet.

Although the domestic marijuana industry may generate revenues as high as $60 billion each year and probably accounts for more than a fourth of the marijuana consumed in the United States, this is the first systematic study of the industry and of the people who cultivate marijuana for profit. Weisheit challenges popular images of the drug industry, by shifting focus from drug production in other countries and the plight of inner cities, to the rural drug scene in marijuana, how it involves white middle-aged men, and how the industry has developed.

There is no other organization whose inner workings are more secretive than the Vatican - the spiritual and physical center - of the Catholic Church. Now, with a dynamic new leader in Pope Francis, all eyes are upon the church, as this immensely popular Pope seeks to bring the church back from the right to center, in what can almost be described as a populist stance, blurring the lines between politics, religion and culture. With topics including women, finance, scandal, and reform at the fore, never before have so many eyes been upon the church in what could be its defining moment for modern times. Now the most respected journalist covering the Vatican and the Catholic Church today, John L. Allen, reveals the inner workings of the Vatican to display the vast machinery, and the man at the helm in a way that no other writer can.The Boston Globe has stated that John L. Allen 'is basically the reporter that bishops and cardinals call to find out what's going on within the confines of the Vatican.'

This new casebook fills the need for an interdisciplinary approach to law and religion. It combines a thorough academic review of religion with broad legal coverage that extends beyond the Supreme Court's First Amendment cases to other federal and state cases about a range of religious topics. In addition to chapters on Free Exercise and Establishment, the book's topics include: Individual Conscience and the State (examining conscientious objection and civil disobedience in the military, medical and legal professions); Religion and Politics; Teaching About Religion and Science (including materials about religious studies and theology as well as evolution, creation-science and intelligent design); Comparative Religious Freedom (studying the protection of religious freedom in international law as well as the recognition of religious freedom by the world¿s religious traditions); and Church Autonomy (legal disputes about torts, property and employment law). This casebook's distinguishing feature is that it addresses religion as well as law, giving students more resources to learn about the world¿s religious traditions. Just as law and economics includes economics, and law and literature studies literature, this casebook takes a similar interdisciplinary approach to show how a thorough examination of religion is vital to understanding how courts confront the wide array of issues associated with religion.
