Professor Isaac Campos will be on 91.7 WVXU Sunday, May 13 to talk about his new book. “In the late 19th and early 20th century, marijuana caused madness and violence in Mexico. In his new book, Home Grown: Marijuana and the Origins of Mexico’s War on Drugs, Isaac Campos explains this curious phenomenon and demonstrates that Mexico’s War on Drugs was very much a policy of its own making. In a conversation with Mark Perzel, Campos explains it was Mexico that first taught the United States to truly fear “reefer madness.””
