Product Details


“Allison’s book could become a call to action for many…. As someone who has often been called the godfather of the Progressive Prosecutors’ Movement in this country, I am excited for Allison’s book to be published. Just Dope has the potential to become one of those once-in-a-generation books, shaking up popular beliefs about the role of drugs in American culture and tipping the scales towards a more humane and thoughtful approach in the future.”
—George Gascón, currently elected district attorney of LA, former two-term district attorney of San Francisco, and former chief of police of San Francisco

“Allison is a true marijuana lover from the heart—it’s in her bloodline. She knows nothing else and is always trying to help. If you really wanna know about marijuana laws, you must read this book.”
—“Freeway” Rick Ross

“With Just Dope, Allison Margolin uses a fluid writing style that seamlessly weaves together disparate threads of her own life and sense of justice with courtroom drama, history, science, and a blistering critique of the Drug War. She chronicles her very personal odyssey from hippie child to D.A.R.E. student to drug user to Dopest Defense Attorney and offers frank appraisals of political and prosecutorial policies along the way…. Masterful and well written, I highly recommend this book.”
—Chris Conrad, cannabis author, activist, and court-qualified expert witness

“Allison Margolin has addressed America’s drug abuse crisis in a uniquely honest and compelling autobiography.”
—Eugene Schoenfeld, MD, author of the 1960s–70s newspaper column “Dr. Hip” and Dr. Hip’s Natural Food and Unnatural Acts
