Narcotics have been used by humans since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Sharon Ruston will explore how drugs were developed and used by Sir Humphry Davy at the Ri, and what that says about early 19th Century society. Neuropsychopharmacologist David Nutt will discuss his experience advising contemporary government drugs policy, the wealth of new ‘legal highs’ and what he thinks drugs, and society’s view of them, will look like in the future.
