Afghanistan: Fortress of Cannabis




Afghanistan: Fortress of Cannabis – a wonderful photography book by Lucas Strazzeri that documents his winter 2018 journey through Balkh Province – is now available in hardback and e-book.

Dive into the smoky chillum-houses of northern Afghanistan, through the ripe cannabis fields, the harvest, and the refining of hashish.

This book takes you on an odyssey in search of Afghan charas traditions and their influences on modern cannabis culture.

A total of 130 photographs catch moments of a world seldom glimpsed by outsiders.

In sharp contrast to most journalism on Afghanistan, we encounter a peaceful and proud nation perpetuating its cannabis traditions.
