Alan Sumler -- "Cannabis in the Ancient Greek and Roman World"

Alan Sumler will speak about and sign his new book, Cannabis in the Ancient Greek and Roman World, on Wednesday, July 17th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Did the ancient Greeks and Romans use psychoactive cannabis? Scholars say that hemp was commonplace in the ancient world, but there is no consensus on cannabis usage. Cannabis in the Ancient Greek and Roman World surveys the primary references to cannabis in ancient Greek and Roman texts and covers emerging scholarship about the plant in the ancient world. Beyond cannabis, this book also explores ancient views on medicine, pharmacy, and intoxication.
