Pick Your Poison

The National Library of Medicine produced
Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures and
Medical Prescriptions,
guest curated by historian and educator
Manon Parry, PhD (University of Amsterdam).
The traveling exhibition and companion website
explore the factors that have shaped the changing
definitions of some of our most potent drugs,
from medical miracle to social menace.
Throughout the history of America,
people have used mind altering drugs.
While some of those drugs are socially acceptable,
others are outlawed because of their toxic,
and intoxicating, characteristics.
These classifications have shifted at
different times in history and will continue to change.
