After reading Fast Food Nation, I was on a mission to find any other book written by Schlosser. I find Schlosser an excellent writer, well-versed and well-researched. Of course, he has a point and a bias, but he does an excellent job of supporting his arguments and backing up his opinion with numbers and rational conclusions. In Reefer Madness, Schlosser addresses the impact marijuana laws have had on the US pineal system (and recreational users), the rise of the porn industry, and day labor issues in California. Overall, Schlosser does a fantastic job when describing how the US's focus on unimportant issues tears our focus away from the real problems faced by our nation. A great (and eye-opening read), I highly recommend this book.
