Canadian Drug Policy – Then and Now
by Travis Erbacher
I wrote this term paper for my comparative politics class and got an A. Here is a PDF. I think it gives a good, albeit very surface-skimming view of Canadian drug policy through the twentieth century. The early history is very important and most don’t know it. The disgusting treatment of Chinese-Canadians over the twentieth century includes our drug laws, which were specifically designed to bring about their destruction (see: genocide).
