Mark S. Ferrara, English, publishes a new book

Mark S. Ferrara, English, publishes a new book entitled Sacred Bliss: A Spiritual History of Cannabis (Rowman & Littlefield):
“With scholarly acumen and attunement to the pulses of social evolution, Mark Ferrara guides us through centuries of respectful cannabis use within diverse world religions, and he thoughtfully explores its potential to contribute to the spiritual awakening so urgently needed in the early twenty-first century. This book is a critical, invaluable, and timely ‘missing link’ in the literature on marijuana and on how certain non-ordinary states of awareness may contribute to psychological and spiritual development.” (William A. Richards, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, author of Sacred Knowledge: Psychedelics and Religious Experiences)
