“It is partly thanks to the dedication of this museum, and the determination of director Ben Dronkers, that knowledge about the many uses of the cannabis plant has reached a wide audience and that the political debate about legislation has been conducted with passionate gusto over the past decades. You will discover why the cannabis plant deserves this freedom in the coming pages. I hope you enjoy this book.”
Dries van Agt, former Prime Minister of the Netherlands
“Weed of Wonder highlights the lengthy and multi-faceted symbiosis between the Cannabis plant and human cultures, following the convoluted history of the plant through constantly changing times, and projecting its value into our collective future. This thoroughly researched and well-written tome presents a myriad of fascinating facts that will prove useful to all who enjoy it and wish to further the cannabis cause.”
– Robert Clarke, author of Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany
