Description

Popular Anxieties: Controlling Cannabis and Other Markets at the End of the World

It is more important than ever to differentiate populist anxieties from ones grounded in real social problems for which we have plenty of evidence but weak individual and institutional capacity with which to deal. The liberation of a plant and its people from prohibition law and policy must contend not only with the persistence of prohibition culture, but broader anxieties about the way things are now, at large, for which legal cannabis markets may seem like adding fuel to the fire. This talk identifies the landscape of post-prohibition as embedded in wider anxieties about the world in which we live and what to do about it, as a political and economic history of the present.

Dr. Corva is the founder and executive director of CASP, the Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy based out of Seattle, Washington.
