About the Book

In the last six years, Colorado has seen a population boom reminiscent of the state’s first few years of settlement. But rather than staking mining claims or establishing homesteads, these new pioneers are on the frontier of an emerging science: marijuana as treatment for various debilitating conditions. This book contains personal accounts from doctors, researchers, and patients—self-proclaimed “refugees” seeking treatment unavailable elsewhere—who are at the forefront of medical marijuana practice. Their stories provide unique insights into a social, political and medical revolution.
