    Cannabis: Global Histories

    Governments in places as diverse as Uruguay, Portugal and the USA have made significant alterations to cannabis policies over the last decade, and others such as Canada have committed to change in the next few years.  Ninety years after the UK imposed its own 1928 Coca Leaves and Indian Hemp Regulations, the CSHHH Glasgow gathers historians and invites others to the University of Strathclyde to address a range of historical questions about the origins of attitudes towards, policies on and markets for cannabis substances.  After all, by understanding how countries have come to the laws and control mechanisms that they currently deploy, and the reasons that consumers and suppliers have often proven to be so resistant to them, contemporary positions and future directions can be clearer, better-informed and free of the prejudices of the past.
