David T. CourtwrightOFFERS FRESH INSIGHTS INTO OLD CONTROVERSIES, such as the Supreme Court's rulings on narcotic maintenance or the motives behind the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act. The authors also expand on neglected subjects, including the ethical and legal dilemmas facing pharmacists who refilled prescriptions. The book summarizes and updates the history of drug control in the United States while tying it to the larger story of international regulation—a story that seems to have become Sisyphean with the proliferation of new drugs and sources of supply.
