Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0820432385, Paperback)

Criminal law prohibition of cannabis is based on and legitimized by assumptions of alienness to our culture and considerable harm caused by the substance: firstly harm for individual health, and secondly dangers for global society by spreading addiction and lethargy, by inducing intoxicated driving and use of even more dangerous drugs, by causing powerful and violent "organized crime". All these postulated dangers have been proven unsubstantiated and wrong. They are politically functional constructs and welltailored myths for legitimizing and mystifying a hidden curriculum of vested economical interests and increased state control over deviant lifestyles and supposedly dangerous classes. The twenty-two articles of the reader encompass the entire realm of empirical social and legal sciences capable of deconstructing those myths.
