Trapped on the Wheel

Trapped on the Wheel
John Glavin
copyright © 2009
Dickinson Publishing House

Alessandra is willing to risk everything to ride the largest bicycle wheel in the world—the original Ferris Wheel.

Lured by the temptations of the World's Fair, she rebels against her Victorian father, whose life-long vision is for her to become his Lady of the Manor. However, Alessandra vows to resist. After her 18th birthday ball, she begins her painful odyssey to escape the trap awaiting most women—a dominating parent, an arranged marriage, and society's false promises.

Although set over a century ago, Trapped on the Wheel depicts similar battles Chicago faces today: scandal, financial depression, and racism challenged by the people's belief in change and hope for a better life.

Cannabinomics: The Marijuana* Policy Tipping Point
Christopher Glenn Fitchner, M.D.
copyright © 2010
Well Mind Books

From medical renaissance to revolution, from drug war prohibition to public health, from economic reefer madness to recovery—trajectories in public policy are converging toward regulation and economic integration of the herbal cannabis trade. "Americans are by and large ready for this change now but haven't had the vocabulary to articulate it," writes Cannabinomics author Christopher Glenn Fichtner, M.D., a psychiatrist and former state mental health director.

Cannabinomics is not a medical handbook, a drug war treatise, or an economic model but rather a work of patient and public policy advocacy. It looks at real-world medical cases, recent trends in successful policy reform, drug war costs, and the potential economic benefits of cannabis change. Cannabinomics calls for a stakeholder-inclusive regulatory process to help America take ownership of this homegrown commodity and facilitate system learning that could help solve larger global drug war problems.

* Marijuana is an "Americanism" for the dried flowers and leaves of the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant
