Short Description

The American legal system has a complicated—and often self-contradictory—relationship with drugs. The pendulum has swung between outright bans, such as Prohibition, to an easing of regulations, such as is currently evolving with marijuana. From the War on Drugs to the Fair Sentencing Act, this book explores the many complex issues surrounding legislation, regulation, and addiction. From caffeine and aspirin to heroin and meth, drugs are an inescapable part of life in the 21st century. Addiction, once viewed as a shameful secret, is now widely understood to be a brain disease that can be treated. This series explores the many facets of this complex topic, providing students with the facts they need to navigate drug use and abuse in their daily lives.
