The Dope Chronicles by Gary Silver

By |Published On: May 13th, 2015|

1100 years of newspaper cuttings depicting prohibition, illicit substances and the social commentary at the turn of the 20th century. An incredibly full book that will take you many visits to take in.

Amazon customer review: This is quite possibly the best book I’ve ever read concerning the War on Drugs. It details the media’s portrayal of drugs (including alcohol before, during & after prohibition in the US), as well as almost all other drugs of popular (and unpopular) culture. With simple unbiased summaries of the era’s it covers, this book exposes the absolute hypocrisy of the prohibition of mind-altering drugs.

The only negative comment I have about this book is the paste-book style of many newspaper clippings spread onto a single page, often preventing complete viewing of the article and/or its source.

The comments from Harry Anslinger about Marijuana should almost be compulsory reading for teenagers concerning media representations and sensationalisms of topics and almost have to be read/seen to be believed!

A totally unique book. – Amazon
