In the early to mid nineties, I joined a comic book writers group. One of the scripts that I wrote as part of this was The Cartoon Guide to Recreational Drugs, a comic book about the general prohibition of drugs. The first issue was about the history of prohibition.
These were notes I took while researching that book. Where possible, I provide a link to purchase through my association with Amazon.Com. You would certainly want to follow these up before using them: I read the whole book, so I know how much I would trust the information. You haven’t, so you’ll want to follow-up and check for yourself.
Besides helping me write the comic book, these books have also been used as sources for the rest of this web site.
