Each volume in this series describes in detail the effects, use, and abuse of a particular drug or controlled substance. Society's response to the drug -- law enforcement, abuse prevention, and help for those who abuse the drug -- are featured. The reader's need for facts About the drug is paramount, but controversies that surround these drugs are thoroughly examined as well. Lavish use of quotes from experts in treatment and enforcement, as well as from those with personal experience using the drugs give these volumes added authority. Features include:
"These titles in the Drug Education Library offer a detailed, well-sourced portrait of the medical, legal, historical, and societal aspects of the drug use in America. The texts, supported by helpful source notes and a bibliography, are clearly organized and have a slightly academic tone that makes them most useful for debaters and report writers."
