SAENZ ROVNER, Eduardo. LA "PREHISTORIA" DE LA MARIHUANA EN COLOMBIA: CONSUMO Y CULTIVOS ENTRE LOS AÑOS 30 Y 60. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2007, vol.26, n.47, pp. 205-222. ISSN 0121-4772.
Marihuana consumption in Colombia did not become spread as a simple result of its increased use as part of the north-American counterculture of the 1960s. Even though increased crop growing spiraled to satisfy north-American demand at the end of the 1960s and 1970s, there was an important market for domestic consumption in Colombia. On the other hand, "exonerating-type" academic literature tending to see countries such as Colombia as the passive "victims" of externally-induced phenomena is questioned.
