It was the first marijuana experiment to use civilian subjects; only a revolutionary experiment resulting in
cold, hard scientific facts could convince policymakers to alter existing drug laws and criminal codes.
William Boudreau was one of these test subjects. No Compelling Reason is Boudreau’s firsthand
recollection of a test that reveals marijuana as a modern pharmacological tool that boasts creativity and
assists the research for self-identity.
No Compelling Reason takes on the ageless controversy of marijuana legalization, bringing life to major
scientific viewpoints and university studies, and weaving in the emotional, psychedelic experiences of the
young smokers themselves.
Cannabis cures the afflicted without the danger of addiction. After centuries of professional research, all
major studies agree: There is no compelling reason to persecute someone for using marijuana. So why is
it still illegal in so many states?
