CANNABIS INDICA CAUSES HOMICIDAL MANIA!

(5 Sterne)

This learned text was a reference for prosecuting them. (See below. Well worth a listen when your stomach feels strong. A must for u if you need to know what the actual medical/legal situation was at a certain year or even month. It's the 8th ed. of the original 1899ish work by Dr. William Murrell. Download the free hard copy and check out the extensive table of contents first. Then pick your interest/research area. It is a keeper for your reference shelf! Ch. 15 (16th track) @ 20:30. Did you know? "Cannabis indica, Indian hemp...hashish, used in the East as a sedative, may cause people to run amok and commit murder." (here I thought it was Cannabis sativa that did that, isn't C. indica famous for a symptom needing no definition, 'couchlock'?). And before prescribing cocaine, doctors should see p. 82 of the 1920 Dangerous Drugs Act. Clear readings of amazing resource. Just right for an autodidactic bookworm in the mood for something really different; but truly required reading for researchers .

Very interesting listen

Very interesting and informative. Amazing insight considering the time frame of it’s writing. I found it very enjoyable, I’m sure I’ll have to give it another listen soon if only to cement the science in my mind.

Amazing book for the time it was written.

Wordy but Interesting, author has an exceptional vocabulary (be warned). Narrated by Librivox (several readers). Recommended for mystery readers who like science.

Interesting historically and as an introduction to this topic
