This article proposes that such depictions should be read through a cultural analysis rooted in the [...]

All rights reserved. Ab s t r a c t Background : In less than a decade, Morocco reportedly saw cannabis cultivation decrease by 65%, and hashish production is widely believed to have followed the same trend.
