Event description

Description

The 1960s cultural liberation threatened traditional established principles leading to the banning of psychoactive drugs despite evidence of therapeutic utility, a legacy still impeding fifity years later.

The Centre for Addictive Behaviour Research is pleased to present Professor David Nutt (Imperial College London) discussing the origins of the drug control movement in the 1960s and how this was driven by politcal rather than health concerns. Cultural liberation provided by music, art and thought threatened traditional established principles and so led to these drugs being banned.
