Historians and political scientists outnumber contributors from law and medicine as they explore the complex history and ongoing debate about regulating drugs in Canada. Their topics include setting public policy on drugs as a choice of social values, liquor control and ethnicity in Ontario 1927-44, criminalizing LSD and the politics of psychedelic expertise 1961-68, alcohol and other drugs in Canada during the 1960s and 1970s, and the inevitability of addiction treatment in the criminal justice system.
