Lighting Up: Perceptions of American Drug Culture

Thursday, October 29, 2015 to Saturday, January 23, 2016

Drug use within the United States has always existed, but how did popular culture identify with and manage drug use? “Lighting Up” looks at these trends across America over a period of 140 years. A focus on how gender, race, and class challenged the accepted norm of a drug culture and how it defined who you were in society.
