Grass Roots: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Marijuana in America

The “War on Drugs” covered many gains and losses for the cannabis community over the years. Historian Emily Dufton highlights the correlation between the state of cannabis today with the state of cannabis 40 years ago, when legalization seemed inevitable. We too soon forget that the swinging 1960s were a long, forgotten memory by the time the Reagan era had returned to demonizing cannabis. Dufton’s book helps us learn from the mistakes of the past and apply that knowledge to the movement to legalize cannabis. (Richard Saunders)
