Drugs and Alcohol: Cannabis, Opium, and the Art of Distillation

Though drugs and alcohol are a hot topic these days, it is worthwhile to remember that the production and use of cannabis, opium and alcohol all have a long history. On display for the month of February are some the Fisher Library's early printed and illustrated works on medicinal cannabis, hemp, opium, as well as 16th-century instructional books on the art of distillation.

This display was curated by the Fisher's Susan Chater.
