Book Launch: Busted by Susan Boyd

By

Join Susan Boyd, and guests Donald MacPherson and Horde of Two, on the publication of Susan’s new book, Busted: An Illustrated History of Drug Prohibition in Canada.

Canada’s drug laws are constantly changing. But what does Canada’s history of drug prohibition say about its future?

Susan Boyd argues that in order to chart the future, it is worthwhile for us as Canadians to know our history of prohibition and our history of resistance to it.

Busted is an illustrated history of Canadian drug prohibition and resistance to that prohibition. Reproducing over 170 striking archival and contemporary drawings, paintings, photographs, film stills and official documents from the 1700s to the present, Susan Boyd shows how Canada’s drug prohibition policies evolved and were shaped by race, class and gender discrimination. For more than a century, drug prohibition has been and continues to be an expensive failure.

Books and CDs will be for sale.

Co-presented by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, Canadian Drug Policy Coalition, and Fernwood Publishing.
