Over the last 30 years, millions of people have come in contact with cannabis, but there is surprisingly little information available that examines the drug as a whole—its medicinal properties, its function as a commodity traded on a global scale, its role in religion, the many ways it can be cultivated, and its effect on body and mind. In Cannabis Culture, journalist Patrick Matthews finds that researchers have unraveled the complexities of the plant, uncovering in the process much of the chemistry of our minds and emotions. In addition to scientists, Matthews meets a colorful mix of characters—connoisseurs, criminals, and cultivators—who together make up the new cannabis culture.
Lost in the Shuffle
The Co-Dependent Reality
Paperback ISBN: 0932194451
"Co-dependency" is the denial or repression of the real self. It is based on the wrong belief that love, acceptance, security, success, closeness and salvation are all dependent upon one's ability to do "the right thing." In the process, the co-dependent denies who he really is. Once addicted, the codependent becomes blind to the reality of his own behavior and to his own self-worth. A witty and well-told story, Lost In The Shuffle is written for those who seek to find themselves and break free of their troubled past and their present addiction to the rules the do-dependent lives by. Robert Subby presents new insights in an earthy, honest manner and shares the process of recovery with all who have been lost in the shuffle.
