Featured in New Book Busted: An Illustrated History of Drug Prohibition in Canada | December 2017


Upon my return from a United Nations workshop in Dhaka, Bangladesh, I was delighted to receive a copy of the new book Busted: An Illustrated History of Drug Prohibition in Canada (Fernwood Publishing, 2017, ISBN 978-1-55266-976-1) by Professor Susan Boyd from the Faculty of Human and Social Development at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. 

Busted: An Illustrated History of Drug Prohibition in Canada by Susan Boyd (Fernwood Publishing).

It is a beautifully illustrated book and an excellent introduction to Canada's unique history surrounding drug use and drug prohibition. As the country embarks on a new phase in its relationship to some drugs, the book gives the bigger picture that many Canadians are probably unaware of. Canada had a period of extensive social experimentation in the late 1960s and early 1970s, defying perceptions the country is 'boring' and where excitement doesn't happen.

A feature we did for Toronto's Watch Magazine in 1994 (in which I was Editor-in-Chief) is on page 124 in the chapter on The Counterculture Movement: The 1960s and 1970s.

"Peace, Order and Good Pot" by Bill White from Toronto's Watch Magazine in 1994.
