According to the National Library of Medicine, this exhibition explores some of the factors that have shaped the changing definition of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace. It also explores how these drugs have a continuing influence on modern medicine and public health.

An accompanying online exhibition features a fascinating collection of historical photos and documents relating to the history of tobacco, alcohol, opium, cocaine, and marijuana.
