Marijuana in the modern world-- 'Too High To Fail'

Examiner.com
The long-standing Drug War of the modern era is equally rooted in the miasma of corruption, racism, and the almighty dollar. At the epicenter of the decades-old drug policy is that controversial and ancient plant, marijuana, or as author, Doug Fine insists on calling it in his recent book, “Too High To Fail” —cannabis. Cannabis, pot, marijuana, hemp, or whatever moniker it is given, the controversial herb has a legacy of well over five thousand years of human usage. The book uses the example of cannabis growers in Mendocino County, California to represent the larger picture of what is at the center of the contentious and shifting debate on marijuana’s status—both medical and recreational—in America.
