I found the book very informative covering all the new drugs in our modern society and the ways our youth use and abuse them. It covers illicit to prescription drugs including legal and illegal production and marketing as well. One thing I did notice is there was a lot of information that seems to be repeated in different chapters. However, that may have just been a style to include specifics of drugs within the specific context of each chapter. While this is a required reading for my Masters criminal justice program, it brings a cohesive 'light' to what our modern medicine based thinking has caused regarding overuse and abuse of otherwise good intention drugs.

This book was very useful in my class surrounding drug and abuse. The information was very informative and helpful. The book was a very detail breakdown of several drugs and the origin of them as well.

I purchased this book and another for a class I am taking on line. I was told the books would arrive on a certain date and I received them five days before I anticipated. I was elated! I appreciated that so much because I was in my second week of class. Thanks so much!
