This Is Your Mind on Plants (Large Print / Paperback)
A perfect companion to How to Change Your Mind by Pollan, this brief overview of opium, caffeine, and mesuline, and their histories, is for anyone interested in medicinal plants. Medicinal plants and their addictive or enhancing attributes have been entwined into our own history as a world and Pollan looks at this both on smaller scales and the larger ones.— Jesse
