Fitz Hugh Ludlow Hypertext Library contains a number of hypertext documents about pre-1937 cannabis use in the English-speaking world, as well as other documents of a similar nature. Among the things you can find at this site are: Fitz Hugh Ludlow's "The Hasheesh Eater," Thomas DeQuincey's "Confessions of an English Opium-Eater," Bayard Taylor's "The Visions of Hasheesh," hashish-related excerpts from the "Arabian Nights" hashish-related writings by Charles Baudelaire, Aleister Crowley, Louisa May Alcott, John Greenleaf Whittier, etc.; newspaper articles about marijuana from The New York Times dating from 1929 to 1937; excerpts from medical texts, encyclopedias, etc. about hemp and cannabis preparations.
Marijuana Anonymous, for people who believe they abuse cannabis and need help stopping. Unfortunately, and in spite of all the evidence, the group persists in labeling cannabis as "addictive," a quality they project on the healing herb that enables their denial and results in increased harm to medical marijuana patients and drug war prisoners. It would better serve group members to focus on the concept of dependency, a subjective quality originating in themselves. What MA won't tell its members is that if they've discontinued cannabis use for more than a few weeks and are still suffering serious depression, anxiety, dysphoria, or other mental or physical deterioration as a result, they are among a small minority of cannabis users. A higher proportion of users becomes dependent on video poker, or television. The real problem for such people may be a serious, liefe-threatening mental or physical illness such as major depression, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, opiate or alcohol addiction, or any other number of other serious illnesses for which California physicians are currently writing recommendations for medical marijuana. Living in accordance with the mores of the majority is no substitute for seeing a good doctor, and such people would be well-advised to discuss their marijuana use with a physician or medically-credentialed psychiatrist before placing themselves in the hands of unlicensed, nonmedical counsel. Appropriate medical treatment for any condition improved by cannabis would presumably make quitting cannabis easier (though it may also entail taking drugs more dangerous and/or habit-forming). The vast majority of people who have used cannabis stop after one or a few experiences. The vast majority of the rest consume in moderation - and, even in the Netherlands, the vast majority of long-term cannabis consumers quit on their own by their late 30s. NORML has no quarrel with non-users, former users, or users who want to quit. NORML's struggle is against people who want to coerce others into quitting with prison sentences and other punitive sanctions. That's the difference between temperance and totalitarianism. But it's not always easy to tell which approach MA prefers.

Oregon Trial Lawyers Association.
Paranoia Drug Information Server, lots of fascinating information tucked away in these directories.
The Peace, Not Prisons Legalize It! End The Drug War Doom Theme, Neil Johnson's computer simulation game. Johnson writes that it is "based on a human cage (futuristic prison) for consensual drug users. This game is a must see for all researchers involved in behavioral/psychological aspects of illicit drug use. I owe 100 percent of the success of this computer game to this country's very unscientific and failed incarceration based drug policy. The game is free, the theme is prison, and it runs on almost all machines, DOS, Mac, & Unix. If you don't play computer games, that's OK, just load the game and a long demo will start automatically."
