Abstract

The book Marijuana Legalization: What everyone needs to know discusses whether marijuana should be legalized or not. The book deals with a topic which is relevant in the United States, especially after California’s Proposition 19 nearly passed in 2010 and Colorado andWashington voters approved to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in 2012. Further, recent publications witness how much the general public, academics and policy makers are sensible to the issue (Caulkins et al. 2012a; Kilmer et al. 2010; Room et al. 2008). The aim of the book is not to advocate for legalization neither prohibition, but to provide “the material needed to develop informed opinion […] and to sweep away some of the myths and fallacious arguments that have been offered on both sides of the debate”
