From renowned cannabis activist and author Dana Larsen comes a timely national cannabis history lesson. 132 lavishly illustrated black and white pages take us on a journey from Canada’s first cannabis crop in 1606, to our current muddled situation with medical marijuana. Each page is self-contained and has about 200-300 words, making this book very easy to read and absorb. The illustrations are based on actual people, photographs and historical events, adding information and context as well and depth and beauty to the book.
There has never been a book like this before. Canadians have always had to make do with American-based information about cannabis. Through extensive research, Dana Larsen reveals the complete history of cannabis in Canada, and it’s fascinating.
