Pascal Brotteaux's treatise "Hachich: Herbe de Folie et de Rêve" is "based largely on studies made in northern Africa and in the Near East; but those in the United States interested in investigating the use of marijuana in North America will find in it data useful to them. The author uses the word "hashish" not in its restricted meaning as indicating the particular preparation of cannabis resin called by this name in Egypt, Persia and Turkey but as a general term for all preparations made from cannabis sativa, including not only galenic preparations but also hashish, esrar, madjun, ganja, takruri, kif, dagga, djamba and bhang" (from the Publishers).
Includes an extensive 25-page bibliography at rear.
