I’m the co-author of a current affairs book entitled Prescription Pot (New Horizon Press, 2003). It chronicles the true life of George McMahon, one of five U.S. citizens who can legally smoke marijuana in every state. A recipient of the National Certificate of Heroism, George receives 300 pre-rolled joints each month through a little-known FDA program, to treat pain, spasms, and nausea. Prescription Pot examines the medical marijuana issue through a unique account of George’s courageous struggle with death, his victorious battle with daunting federal bureaucrats, his hilarious and harrowing escapades with police officers, and his journeys in search of America. George’s story is encompassed within a wild trip across four states to the Arkansas State Capitol, Elvis Presley’s Graceland, and Uncle Sam’s marijuana farm at Ole Miss. The book includes the landmark clinical study on the federal marijuana patients.

Although the U.S. Government has been quietly distributing marijuana for over 20 years, federal authorities are targeting state-authorized marijuana clinics, seizing plants and patient records, and prosecuting patients and growers in ten states that have legalized medical marijuana. Now the Bush administration seeks U.S. Supreme Court authorization to revoke licenses of doctors recommending cannabis to patients. The court may decide to hear the case as early as October. If the court rules in favor of the federal government, Pennsylvania doctors will essentially have a “gag order” imposed on them, even while medical marijuana is grown by the feds.
