Award-winning teacher and scientist Dr. Mitch Earleywine follows his best-selling book Understanding Marijuana with an artful and accessible new work, The Parents' Guide to Marijuana. With over 100 pages of information, this book details how to encourage healthy decisions while strengthening honest relationships. The Guide trains parents to listen carefully in order to fit relevant, casual chats into everyday interactions so that they never have to lecture or plead. They learn to dispute popular propaganda about marijuana to establish themselves as reliable authorities. Even parents who experimented (or continue to experiment) will find straightforward, innovative strategies for strengthening their relationships as they explain their justified reasons for keeping their teens away from marijuana. Dr. Mitch Earleywine is an associate professor of psychology at the University at Albany, State University of New York. He has over 90 scientific works in print based on research funded by government and private agencies. His name appears often in national publications, including Rolling Stone, Time magazine and in his regular column in High Times. He serves on the board of directors for the Marijuana Policy Project and the advisory board for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. He lives in a small town in New York with his wife and two daughters.
