Association Copy—Inscribed to Stephen Jay Gould

Marihuana: The Forbidden Medicine

Notes: Two Harvard faculty members argue for full legalization of marijuana on medical grounds.

184 pages.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, with a numberline ending in 1). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. This copy is inscribed to Grinspoon's fellow Harvard professor, Stephen Jay Gould, the National Book Award-winning paleontologist and evolutionary biologist. "For Steve, with much appreciation and warm regards. Lester."

Gould is quoted at length in the book, describing his first bout of cancer and the success he had using marijuana to control his nausea. This book is quite uncommon signed. With a posthumous bookplate indicating the provenance from Gould's Harvard office library. A nice association.

Publication: New Haven: Yale University Press, 1993.
