Petersen, Robert C., Ed.
This report studies the effects of marihuana on the individual's physical and psychological health, as well as the effects of cannibas use on the society. A major purpose of this report is to serve as an up-to-date compendium of scientific information bearing on the issue of marihuana and health. In order to make the report maximally useful to the technically trained as well as to the layman, findings are reported in technical as well as in more everyday language. The report attempts to carefully describe the strengths and limitations of the work that has been done in this area. The authors of the report state that with the increase of our knowledge of marihuana and its effects, we have become increasingly capable of better designing research so as to more adequately answer the many questions that its use poses in American society. This report emphasizes the more recent findings and their significance in the light of our past knowledge. (Author/WS)
