Smoke and Mirrors: The War on Drugs

African American Art & Culture Complex

This exhibit investigates the impacts of the ongoing war on drugs campaign. By exploring the messaging, propaganda, and branding historically used to shift the narrative about cannabis and hemp, the exhibition looks to dispel the myths about this flower.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Smoke and Mirrors: The War on Drugs :

This smart mixed-media group exhibition considers the lingering impact of the U.S. government’s war on drugs, the propaganda used to enact punitive policies that disproportionately impacted communities of color, the present-day evolution of cannabis policies and the growing research that supports its healing, therapeutic and socially valuable possibilities.
