World Wide Weed: Global Trends in Cannabis Cultivation and Its Control
Tom Decorte, Gary W. Potter, Martin Bouchard
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Business & Economics - 293 pages
As we start the second decade of the 21st century, the new cannabis industry continues to fascinate both casual and academic observers of the drug scene. Researchers around the world have become increasingly interested in the phenomenon, aiming to describe, and potentially explain, the rapid switch from importation to domestic production in their own countries. Bringing together some of the world's leading experts on cannabis cultivation, this book takes an interdisciplinary look at global trends in cannabis cultivation. It serves as an exemplar for wider discussions of key theories and concepts relating to the spread not just of cannabis cultivation, but also of illegal markets more generally, the actors that operate within these markets and the policies and practices that are employed in response to developments within these markets.
