Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
What's the marijuana industry look like around the world? How are businesses, governments, and patients impacted by the laws of their lands? Is there really any proof that medical marijuana works? In Marijuana: Facts, Figures, & Opinions, we'll answer these questions and more. We'll explore everything you need to know about marijuana as an illegal drug, as a medicine, and as a business. We'll take an in-depth look at how legalization is impacting states and countries that have legalized marijuana. Together, we'll investigate the facts and evaluate the risks versus the rewards. This book won't tell you what to think about marijuana. It won't try to convince you that it's safe or that it's harmful--that it should be legal or not. It will simply give you the wide range of facts so that you can consider that for yourself. Marijuana: Facts, Figures, & Opinions is just one of five fascinating titles in the Marijuana Today series. Readers will learn about medical and recreational marijuana, the benefits and harmful effects of using marijuana, the various legal marijuana products that are now available, what supporters and opponents of marijuana legalization have to say, and much more. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in sports' history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
