The Great Book of Hemp takes a fun, interesting look at the uses of hemp. It includes information on hemp’s history around the world, medicinal uses, spiritual uses, and the controversy surrounding it’s prohibition. It is heavily footnoted, well illustrated and includes more hemp facts and trivia than I’ve seen gathered anywhere else. Its only drawback is that the fun presentation style preaches to the converted rather than to the sceptical scholar. The useful Hemp Resource Guide in the back of the book lists over 100 hemp organizations, magazines, museums, and companies with contact information.
