Exhibition - Grass Roots: Cannabis from Prohibition to Prescription

Saturday, Aug 31, 2019 at 11:00am

Museum of Sonoma County
425 Seventh Street
Santa Rosa, CA 95401

Is it the devil’s weed, a remarkable remedy, or just something to be enjoyed with friends like a glass of wine? Cannabis use generates strong, often divided opinions, but its story is undeniably significant. While cannabis has been part of human history for thousands of years, in the last 125 years it has gone from legal to illegal in California and back again, with California serving as a leader in its prohibition and legalization. From its common use in American medicines over a century ago, to its prohibition, to the passionate advocacy for its legalization during the AIDS crisis, explore the long history of cannabis in Grass Roots: Cannabis from Prohibition to Prescription. The exhibition will open on June 16, 2019, with an opening reception on June 15, 2019.
