Psychedemia says
Competing views about the dangers and potential benefits of illicit drugs are ubiquitous. As the world transitions its drug laws regarding psychedelic medicines, the legalization of marijuana, and "mandatory minimum" jail sentences, how can we gain insight into the cultural history of drugs in our society? This event brings together leading professionals engaged in drug research for brief presentations and an open discussion about drug laws in the country and their impact on campus.

Dinner will be served.
