The history of drugs allows to focus on three interesting points: (1) The city has always been the place where artificial pleasures (like drugs) are invented then diffused (2) The involved actors (doctors, the Church, intellectuals …) have displayed fluctuating doctrines in the field (3) There have been successive “waves of moralizing”. One can build two scenarios: a majority in the Opinion appears which is in favor of drugs use and it will be decriminalized or legalized, either a new “wave of moralizing” triggers the choice of repression.
