An Illustrated History of Drug Prohibition in Canada

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Susan Boyd

Busted is an illustrated history of Canadian drug prohibition and resistance to that prohibition. Reproducing drawings, paintings, photographs, film stills, and official documents from the 1700s to the present, Susan Boyd shows how Canada’s drug prohibition policies evolved and were shaped by race, class, and gender discrimination. This history demonstrates that prohibition and criminalization produces harm rather than benefits. Visually engaging and approachably written, Busted is a timely examination of Canada’s history of drug control and movements against that control.
