"I highly recommend this little book for students in D.A.R.E., other drug abuse prevention programs, and their teachers and parents. It's a jewel." -Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance
"It's Just a Plant" is a beautifully-illustrated children's book about marijuana, suitable for all ages. The story takes the reader along a journey with a young girl as she learns about marijuana from a diverse cast of characters including her parents, a local farmer, a doctor and the neighborhood police officer. The book is as far as you can get from the shock-and-shame propaganda that passes for most drug education. Instead, "Its Just a Plant" addresses the complexities of pot in a thoughtful, fact-oriented manner.
