Illustrations and infographics are great tools to show data and talk about controversial topics as medicial marijuana, steam cells, history of cannabis or politics. In these days, the usage of infographics became a tool more than a consequence. As a result, people are becoming aware of scientific infographic power to deliver information successfully. While beautiful illustrations catch your attention, the summary of data can brings new information and be very educational.

As said Jen Christiansen, science communicator of Scientific American Magazine: “By removing barriers (such as technical jargon), and providing context (in this case, the two constellations), the information is presented in an immediately intuitive and engaging manner.”

A good example is this beautiful (and big) infographic that shows the history of cannabis. It has brief and essential information with a beautiful design.
