Join us for an entertaining evening presented by local historian, Jason Wordie on the topic of Opium, a historical overview. 

Opium and its derivative drugs have played a role in Hong Kong since before the colony was established.

In this lecture we will discuss and evaluate the role played by the opium trade in the establishment of the British colony, its economic importance in the nineteenth century, gradual moves towards control prohibition, and the striking economic, legal and moral parallels that exist between the nineteenth century opium trade and the tobacco industry in the twenty-first century.

This talk will be the third of a series of Hong Kong Historial talks by Jason.  Please do join us, even if you did not attend the previous two-talks!

 
As always, friends and partners of Mozaic members are most welcomed to join too, at a cost of HKD 630.
