Reviews

  • "Enlightening...a very engaging history."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Booth tells this story with admirable restraint...this book should be on the shelf of anyone interested in human freedoms and bad laws."

    Independent
  • "So good no one will need to do another for at least fifty years...mesmerizing detail, fantastical digressions, lots of jokes and wry asides."

    James Delingpole, Literary Review
  • "A testament to the late Booth that he could make such a boring subject so interesting."

    Sunday Times
  • "A colourful tale ... Chronicles the remarkable and often mystifying process through which cannabis became outlawed throughout the Western world, and the devastating effect such legislation has had on the global economy."
