Busted

an illustrated history of drug prohibition in Canada

Published .
Written in English.

About the Edition

"Busted is a timely short history of Canadian drug prohibition and resistance to it. Canada's drug prohibition history is unique--shaped by race, class, and gender concerns, and local, national and international events. I argue in the book, that in order to chart future drug policy it is well worth knowing Canada's unique history of drug prohibition. Although the book's main focus is on criminalized drugs, images of alcohol and tobacco are included in order to illuminate how these drugs, although strongly contested at times, remain legal today."--
