Description
Dr. Rathge examines the emergence of legal regulations on the use of cannabis in the US during the late 19th and early-20th centuries in "Cannabis Cures: Medical Jurisprudence and the Origins of the War on Drugs". Often considered the golden age of cannabis medicine, Rathge argues this period was critical in categorizing cannabis as a potentially dangerous drug and establishing the cultural and legal basis for a bifurcated drug market that ultimately became the foundation for the war on drugs.
