This engaging book surveys the global history of marijuana, reaching back thousands of years to its origins in Central Asia. Noted historian John Charles Chasteen traces the use of the drug since Neolithic times, which makes marijuana among the first domesticated plants. Surprisingly, though, only infrequently has it been used as a recreational drug. Instead, there is a vibrant spiritual dimension to its long history that has been continually ignored. Chasteen explores this rich heritage with captivating insight.
