What this book does effectively is it develops the historical understanding of where we are today with drug policy.
The textbook is perhaps one of the most comprehensive resources on drugs and drug policies, with a broad and in-depth range of controversy, psychotropic effects, prevention and treatment efforts, and theory.
The content of each chapter is excellent and robust.
This book is written in a way that draws students.
This book is an amazing comparison and history of drugs that excludes the governmental propaganda and its bogus studies that the government puts out to scare the American population against drug use while showing the real reasons that the government wanted to keep these drugs illegal and now unmarketable to the general population because of the psychological effects.
This is the textbook that we should begin using with students in our Narcotics and Dangerous Substances classes, because it is thorough and easy for students to read.
This textbook was the best that I have read dealing with Drug Use, Abuse and Legislation/Policies. The textbook was comprehensive and easy to read. I truly enjoyed it.
This book has helped me a lot in preparing and planning my addiction lectures, mainly the prescribed drugs one. It's a good book and I've included it in the reading list. Thank you for supplying it.
