Professor Isaac Campos Cited in Denver Post Article on Marijuana Legalization

Please click here to read a recent piece from the Denver Post citing an interview with UC History Professor Isaac Campos on the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and other states over the last couple years.  Professor Campos provides an interesting view of the broader historical context informing the ongoing changes in US state law concerning marijuana.

Professor Campos is a well-regarded specialist in the history of modern Mexico whose recent book, Home Grown: Marijuana and the Origins of Mexico’s War on Drugs (Duke, 2012), was recognized last fall as the “Best Book” of 2012 by the New England Council on Latin American Studies.
