Event Details

The Association for Political and Legal Anthropology, the Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group, the Culture & Agriculture section, the Society for the Anthropology of Food and Nutrition, and the Society for the Anthropology of North America have organized a free tour of the cannabis industry and a public anthropology forum to enable anthropologists to learn firsthand about the possibilities and risks accompanying legalized marijuana. Cannabis Cultures is a formal event of the 2015 Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association. The organizers have created and sponsored this free event to bring together anthropologists and colleagues from across different subfields to engage with issues of timely concern for our host city.

Organizer

Association for Political and Legal Anthropology, Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group, Culture and Agriculture

The Cannabis Cultures Tour and Discussion Program is jointly organized by The Association for Political and Legal Anthropology (APLA), the Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG),  the Culture & Agriculture Section (C&A), The Society for the Anthropology of Food & Nutrition (SAFN), and The Society for the Anthropology of North America (SANA), all sections of the American Anthropological Association (AAA).

Sponsoring Organizations:

The Association for Political and Legal Anthropology (APLA) is comprised of members who share interests in issues of contemporary importance in the fields of political and legal anthropology, including nationalism, citizenship, political and legal processes, the state, civil society, colonialism and post-colonial public spheres, multiculturalism, globalism, immigration, refugees, and media politics.

The Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG) is a network for anthropologists and other social scientists whose research involves tourism- and travel-related phenomena. Membership in the AAA is required for full membership in ATIG. If you are already a member of the AAA, all that’s necessary is to fill out our online membership form and also add ATIG to your AAA membership profile.

Culture & Agriculture (C&A) aims to develop the study and understanding of agrarian systems from a holistic, social science perspective, and to link academics and practitioners concerned with agrarian issues, agricultural development, and agricultural systems through dissemination of scientific research, encouragement of effective instruction, and to encourage application of knowledge to public policy.

The Society for the Anthropology of Food & Nutrition (SAFN) aims to encourage research and exchange of ideas, theories, methods and scientific information relevant to understanding the socio-cultural, behavioral and political-economic factors related to food and nutrition; to provide a forum for communication and interaction among scientists sharing these interests and with other appropriate organizations; and to promote practical collaboration among social and nutritional scientists at the fields and program levels.

The Society for the Anthropology of North America (SANA) The goal of the Society for the Anthro­pology of North Amer­ica is to address the need for a focused voice and insti­tutional pre­sence for the Anthro­po­logy of the Uni­ted States, Can­ada and Mex­ico. While elements of our research tradition are addressed by applied, medical, educational, political and urban anthropology, among others, no previously organized anthropological society has focused upon this region as an “area.” In order to place our research findings in historical perspective and to continue developing theoretically, it is important that we acknowledge our area context and begin to analyze it systematically within broad frameworks such as ethnicity, race, class, gender and structured inequality.
