9780520275430: Weed Land: Inside America's Marijuana Epicenter and How Pot Went Legit

Early in the morning of September 5, 2002, camouflaged and heavily armed Drug Enforcement Administration agents descended on a terraced marijuana garden. The DEA raid on the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana, a sanctuary for severely ill patients who were using marijuana as medicine, is the riveting opening scene in Weed Land, an up-close journalistic narrative that chronicles a transformative epoch for marijuana in America.

From the 1996 passage of California’s Proposition 215, the nation’s first medical marijuana law, through law enforcement raids, clinical studies that revealed medical benefits for cannabis, and the emergence of a lucrative cannabis industry, Weed Land reveals the changing political, legal, economic, and social dynamics around pot. Peter Hecht, an award-winning journalist from The Sacramento Bee, offers an independent, meticulously reported account of the clashes and contradictions of a burgeoning California cannabis culture that stoked pot liberalization across the country.

From the Inside Flap :

"Weed Land contains in-depth personal histories of those at the heart of the marijuana industry and law-reform movement in California. Hecht tells the protagonists' compelling stories with care in his well-written and well-researched work."
—Sam Kamin, professor and director, Constitutional Rights and Remedies Program, University of Denver Sturm College of Law

"In this powerful account, Hecht reveals the origins of the modern medical cannabis movement and explores how it evolved from a small cadre of seriously ill patients, concerned doctors, and compassionate caregivers to an annual multibillion-dollar 'recreational industry.'"
—Jed Riffe, producer and director of Waiting to Inhale: Marijuana, Medicine, and the Law

"Weed Land documents the Wild West culture of California's marijuana industry on a journey from Hollywood to Humboldt, along with the hippies, healers, and hucksters who are changing American culture and politics. It's essential reading for anyone who is a fan of California's most lucrative agricultural product."
—Dale Maharidge, author of And Their Children After Them, winner of the 1990 nonfiction Pulitzer Prize

"Hecht artfully weaves together the whole history of the modern medical marijuana movement in California. Weed Land is an extremely engaging and satisfying read."
—Isaac Campos, Associate Professor of History, University of Cincinnati, and author of Home Grown: Marijuana and the Origins of Mexico's War on Drugs

"The movement to legalize pot is in full swing, and if you want to understand how we got here, Peter Hecht's impressive Weed Land is the book to read.  He's covered the story as thoroughly as any journalist in the country, and it shows."
—Gary Delsohn, chief speech writer to California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger from 2006-2009, and author of The Prosecutors:A Year in the Life of a District Attorney's Office

About the Author :

Peter Hecht is a senior writer who covers California issues for The Sacramento Bee and McClatchy Newspapers. In 2010, as an initiative to legalize marijuana in California was put on the ballot, Hecht reported on news, trends, and people behind the marijuana story in an election year blog, Weed Wars, Dispatches from the California Marijuana Front. He went on to cover medical marijuana research, a federal crackdown on America's largest marijuana economy and, ultimately, cannabis liberalization that led to voters in Colorado and Washington approving pot for recreational use.

Description du livre University of California Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Early in the morning of September 5, 2002, camouflaged and heavily armed Drug Enforcement Administration agents descended on a terraced marijuana garden -- a medicinal and spiritual refuge for the sick and dying. The DEA raid on the Wo/Men s Alliance for Medical Marijuana, a sanctuary for severely ill patients who were using marijuana as medicine, stirs the opening of Weed Land, an up-close journalistic narrative that chronicles a transformative epoch for marijuana in America. Moving from the passage of California s Proposition 215, the nation s first medical marijuana law, through law enforcement raids and the emergence of a lucrative cannabis industry, Weed Land reveals the changing political, legal, economic, and social dynamics of pot. It offers an independent, meticulously reported account of the clashes and contradictions of a burgeoning California cannabis culture that stoked pot liberalization elsewhere, leading to marijuana legalization votes in Colorado and Washington. Written by Peter Hecht, an award-winning journalist from The Sacramento Bee, Weed Land takes readers into the laboratories of researchers who challenged federal drug policy with clinical studies revealing the medical benefits of cannabis. It also explores an exploding marijuana marketplace that pitches compassionate healing with the pure joy of pot. And it takes readers inside the law enforcement backlash -- and unfolding consequences -- of a federal crackdown on America s largest marijuana economy. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9780520275430
