Chris Calton looks at the history of opium use around the world. The tale takes us to baby farms in Victorian England, 19th Century China, and even one of the most prominent examples of fake news from the Washington Post.

For further reading, see Opium: A History edited by Martin Booth (St. Martin's Griffin, 1996).
