The High North

Cannabis in Canada

With a Foreword by Ryan Stoa
A collection of essays on marijuana legalization in Canada.

In 2018, Canada became only the second country in the world to legalize cannabis. Once shunned, cannabis users are now eagerly courted as customers. What has cannabis legalization meant for the governments, the Canadian legal system, and the general public? The contributors, cannabis scholars and “practitioners,” as well as activists and advocates, examine public policy on cannabis, analyze consumer perceptions, and recount 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.
