Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia – Outdoor screening + Q&A with Hamilton Morris

June 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Explore ethnobotany as Hamilton Morris digs into the history of one of his favorite psychoactive plants: peyote. Tribes and shamans have been consuming the cactus for generations, and Hamilton taps a Native American peyotist to help him trace the plant’s history—from its humble origins to the place it occupies in popular culture today. Hamilton is a Science Editor for Vice Magazine and studies chemistry and psychoactive substances in formal and clandestine labs around the world. Explore Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia to learn more about his work.

As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
