William J. Bennett, former director of the National Drug Control policy under President George H.W. Bush and bestselling author of The Book of Virtues, and co-author Robert White provide strong societal and scientific arguments against the legalization of marijuana. Marijuana, once considered worthy of condemnation, has in recent years become a "medicine," legalized fully in four states, with others expected to follow. But the dangers are clear. According to Bennett's research, more Americans are admitted to treatment facilities for marijuana use than for any other illegal drug. Studies have shown a link between marijuana use and abnormal brain structure and development. From William Bennett comes a call-to-action for the 46 states that know better than to support full legalization, and a voice of reason for millions who have jumped on the legalization bandwagon because they haven't had access to the facts.
WILLIAM J. BENNETT is the former director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under President George H.W. Bush. He is also the former head of the National Endowment for the Humanities and former U.S. Secretary of Education.

ROBERT A. WHITE is the managing partner of the New Jersey offices of a large international law firm, and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey.
