Show Summary Details


The history of the relationship between the British and cannabis stretches back over two centuries. This chapter returns to the themes of the book, control and consumption, and argues that current positions on cannabis in the UK can only be understood clearly when they are placed back into that history. The events and processes of the last 200 years reveal how those current positions were arrived at, and how well founded they are.

Keywords: history; control; consumption
