"A wildly brilliant, radically candid, and rigorous daybook of [Waldman’s] life-changing, last-resort journey." —Lisa Shea, Elle
"Relentlessly honest and surprisingly funny." —Sharon Peters, USA Today
"An intriguing and thorough look at the therapeutic possibilities of an illegal drug... Engaging and deeply researched." —Nora Krug, The Washington Post
"Smart, outspoken, provoking, and funny… Poignant, sometimes hilarious... Waldman calls for renewed research and drug-law reform in this informative, candid, altogether irresistible quest." —Donna Seaman, Booklist
"Honest and intelligent… A humane, well-reasoned, and absolutely necessary argument for a major overhaul of America’s drug policy. The book triumphantly coheres in a lucid manifesto of how and why the racist, immoral undertaking called the War on Drugs has failed… Passionate, persuasive." —Claire Vaye Watkins, The New Republic
