I’m the co-author of a current affairs book entitled Prescription Pot (New Horizon Press, 2003). It chronicles the life of George McMahon, one of five U.S. citizens who can legally smoke marijuana in every state. A recipient of the National Certificate of Heroism, George receives 300 pre-rolled joints each month through a little-known FDA program, to treat pain, spasms, and nausea. Prescription Pot examines the medical marijuana issue through a unique account of George’s courageous struggle with death, his victorious battle with daunting federal bureaucrats, his hilarious and harrowing escapades with police officers, and his journeys in search of America. George’s story is encompassed within a wild trip across four states to the Arkansas State Capitol, Elvis Presley’s Graceland, and Uncle Sam’s marijuana farm at Ole Miss.
Our book has strong implications for Canada. Although the United States Government have secretly grown and distributed marijuana to sick citizens for over 20 years, U.S. authorities are threatening Canada with tightened borders and economic consequences for liberalizing their cannabis policies. Additionally, the final chapter contains a letter from a Canadian patient whom George assisted in obtaining her legal exemption status.
Would you consider reviewing Prescription Pot? New Horizon Press will gladly send a complimentary copy.
If you would prefer a feature article, George is available for interviews.
I appreciate your time and attention, and eagerly await your response.
