In This Is Your Mind on Plants (Penguin Books), Michael Pollan dives deep into three plant drugs – opium, caffeine, and mescaline – and our thinking about them. Treating them as drugs, whether licit or illicit, is one of the least interesting things you can say about them, he argues, for when we take them into our bodies and let them change our minds, we are engaging with nature in one of the most profound ways we can. Joining him to moderate is Karen Koffler, M.D., Osher Center for Integrative Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
