WHY A MINDFULLY-HIGH BOOK?
Mindfully High has been written to answer the primary questions people ask about cannabis usage in America. These ten in-depth discussions are based on the most recent research, and are presented within the professional guidelines of cognitive and humanistic psychology.
There is no bias in these discussions - both positive and negative social, medical, and personal dimensions of cannabis use are presented with equal space and credence.
As the author of MindfullyHigh, much of my professional training indirectly prepared me for working with a psychoactive additive to therapy. I was hired out of Princeton University to conduct early NIH research studying the effects of marijuana on college students, and in comparison also in families. I then conducted EEG brain-wave experiments for NIMH, evaluating the potential damage of psychedelics on heavy users (we luckily found no brain damage).
Then for several decades I guided individuals and groups seeking a more mindful approach to healthy and responsible cannabis use. Admittedly much of what I kn ow about cannabis is still not experimentally documented - but my professional observations seem to ring true with many other dispassionate observers.
There are a great many questions remaining unanswered to date, regarding how cannabis impacts our local communities and national mindset. Fervent advocates on both sides of the discussion often forget that both perspectives need to be honored and listened to. In Mindfully High, I present the best research data to date, and then I take responsibility for drawing reasonable conclusions based on the data and my own observations over the years.
