Abstract:

"In 2018, Canada became only the second country in the world to legalize cannabis. The High North is a groundbreaking collection that examines the run-up to legalization and its aftermath, while disrupting widely accepted narratives about legalization in Canada. What does cannabis legalization really mean for the public, governments, and the Canadian legal system? Contributors from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, cannabis scholars and “practitioners,” activists and advocates, highlight the neoliberal forces shaping cannabis consumerism. They expose the vested interests of government and industry and the corporate focus on the nascent green dream of profits. Longtime cannabis activist Jodie Emery revisits the activism that led to today’s great social experiment. Historian Catherine Carstairs takes readers back to 1923, when few would even have heard of the substance newly added to the schedule of restricted drugs, through to an examination of today’s cannabis laws. Kanenhariyo Seth LeFort outlines customary cannabis-related practices among the Kanyen’kehá:ka (Mohawk) First Nation. From the first appearance of cannabis in Canada, and the advent of current-day dispensaries, to the mental health implications of legal weed, and the plight of workers in the cannabis economy, The High North offers a comprehensive critique of the many aspects of legalization. To quote the Grateful Dead: what a long, strange trip it’s been."--
