Developed as an inexpensive treatment for asthma sufferers, methamphetamine became a much-abused narcotic during the 1960s when drug addicts discovered its mind-altering effects. Now, the drug once known as "speed" has returned as "crystal meth," a far more potent form that has invaded all corners of American life.
"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."
