I had the chance to speak at a virtual summer school held by the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) at the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University (the Centre is a shared operation). I was a last minute addition because my colleague Jim Mills, an expert in Asian drug histories, was unable to make it. It was a great opportunity to provide my perspective on the history of drug regulation. But even better was the second talk, by Peder a research associate at CSHHH studying drug subcultures in the twentieth century. These are groups for whom drug use was a marker of identity. It was fascinating.
So watch my talk, for sure, but then enjoy and learn from Peder!
