About

Presented in partnership with the Chicago Humanities Festival

Hamilton Morris is on a one-man crusade to understand the world of drugs. The host of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia on Vice.com, he has traveled from Iceland to Brazil to China and beyond to explore—and sometimes sample—the effects of mushrooms, frog secretions, synthetic marijuana, and much more. Marrying scientific rigor with journalistic research, Morris (son of famed documentary filmmaker Errol Morris) considers his quest an ongoing experiment in what he calls “ethno-chemistry.”
