Summary
"The national debate over the legalization of marijuana is heating up as states begin to legalize its use for medicinal and recreational purposes. The title in the Greenhaven series deepens the discussion on marijuana should it be legal or not? Does it help or harm users? Should medicinal use only be allowed? Answers to these questions will be debated for years to come"--
