Meet the Terpenes: A Visual Introduction from Isoprene to Latex. Inspiration for Meet the Terpenes came from the rhetological fallacies graphic over at Information is Beautiful, while motivation came from a 45°C heat wave this week that prevented any sensible Australians from going outside.
So I stayed at home and did this. It took about three days to sketch, research and create. Three days ago, I knew nothing about terpenes. My undergraduate phytochemistry class was really difficult. The teacher was a genius, and put huge amounts of effort into his tutorials, giving us thick booklets at each seminar filled with his hand-written notes and dozens of chemical structures. So this week, I decided to make the graphic I wish I’d had when I took the phytochemistry class many years ago. Cannabis Is In Your DNA.

Now, with many U.S. states choosing to legalize the plant, Mexico is seeing a window of opportunity to change the laws at home, keep non-violent offenders out of jail, and minimize the violence created by the black market.
