British Indian Hemp Commission — Posting Volume 1

The National Library of Scotland has posted the enormous 1893-94 public domain Report of the British Indian Hemp Commission, and authorized anyone to repost it with attribution:  https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/.  (Thanks.)  Any student of marijuana policy will learn something there.  There is lots of confusing vocabulary, and I’ll post some notes at some point, but I’m still wading through it.  Any student of marijuana policy will learn something there (and volume 3 is much more useful and understandable for a tax man — I’ll post that someday, but the entire report is at http://digital.nls.uk/indiapapers/browse/archive/74908458).   Dale Gieringer of California NORML told me about this Report years ago, but I just found it online.

So, in 20-page (or so) chunks, here it comes, starting with volume 1:

(There is some overlap as I was confused about pagination.)

IHD vol 1 pages 51-63 or so74464868_53_72
