La description

The High North is a groundbreaking collection of essays that shakes up widely accepted narratives about marijuana legalization in Canada. Featuring contributions from cannabis scholars and “practitioners,” activists and advocates, these pieces examine public policy on cannabis, assess consumer perceptions, and revisit the history of the legalization movement. 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.
