MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores cannabis use among people who are in the age group of 18-30 years old and self-identifying to be of the middle class, based in Dhaka. It places cannabis use in a broader light of the local political context, as a lifeworld that people share, and critiques how that plays out for its members. Looking into ways in which cannabis use creates a specific “subculture” or lifeworld for its’ members and consequently, how that affects actors as they exist in an isolating and oppressive urban space like Dhaka city, this paper explores oppression, deviance and community.
