Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures and Medical Prescriptions @ YSU, Cushwa Hall Atrium
Sep 19 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 pm

September 18 to October 28, 2017
Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures and Medical Prescriptions banner exhibit from the National Library of Medicine, History of Medicine division
Mind-altering drugs have been used throughout the history of America. While some remain socially acceptable, others are outlawed because of their toxic, and intoxicating, characteristics. These classifications have shifted over time and will continue to change. The transformation of a particular drug, from acceptable indulgence to a bad habit, or vice versa, is closely tied to the intentions of those endorsing its use and their status in society. This exhibition will explore some of the factors that have shaped the changing definition of some of our most potent drugs from medical miracle to social menace. Banners describe tobacco, alcohol, opium, cocaine, and marijuana.
This banner exhibit will be in the atrium of Cushwa Hall. PYP_Main
