Written by a leading researcher and textbook author in the field of alcohol and drug studies, this text presents a series of perspectives and reflections on the worlds of drug-taking and drug-seeking.
This highly readable book takes a candid look at the world of drug and alcohol use, abuse, and control. The text presents both sides of major issues, the history and patterns of abuse, and coverage of the major drugs (e.g. Heroin, cocaine, crack, marijuana, amphetamines, hallucinogens, and club drugs).
This excellent resource can be a main text or supplement, and serves as a basis for discussion and debate of some of the major issues related to the drug problem (e.g. legalization, medical marijuana, needle exchange, harm reduction, supply reduction strategies versus demand reduction strategies).
