A Bluedot Favorite Read: ‘This Is Your Mind on Plants’



Digital Projects Manager (and our Good Libations columnist) Julia Cooper is loving Michael Pollan’s This Is Your Mind on Plants  — a cultural deep dive into humanity’s relationship with psychoactive plants, particularly opium, caffeine, and mescaline. “I’m always fascinated by content that reinforces the connection that so much of what we consume without second thought is, in fact, a product of the Earth,” she says. “I’m especially rapt by the caffeine section of the book as it’s so interesting to consider how/why some plants with psychoactive properties are celebrated v. demonized.”
