Publisher: Gestalten, ISBN: 9783899558807, Format: Hardcover, 21 x 26 cm, 256pp
While cannabis is a recreational drug still strongly associated with Western subculture, it has recently become a huge industry. Over the past few years, consuming the herb has become legal in several countries, and a wave of entrepreneurs has emerged, looking to generate and cash in on a new generation of consumers.
Through insightful texts, this book reflects on the novel aesthetics, people, and trends of contemporary cannabis culture, and provides a wider view of the phenomenon.
Addiction, crime, science, the marketing of weed as a booster of creativity and a medical aid, and the use of hemp in clothing are all considered.
