Museum of London , Smithfield Monday March 18 2013 13:00 - 14:00
In less than a century, cannabis went from being lauded as the cure for tetanus and cholera to derision and anxiety about 'the lunatic asylums of India filled with ganja smokers'; here professor James Mills looks at its heady rise and inevitable fall, touching on issues such as political agendas and moral anxieties.
