Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since drug use has occurred throughout history and within most cultures, the authors in this updated edition of their original work ( LJ 3/15/83) believe that ``education based on truthful information is the only solution to the drug problem.'' In straightforward language, Weil and Rosen distinguish between drug use and drug abuse and stress the importance of developing a ``good relationship'' with drugs. Because the authors do not condemn drug use (legal or illegal), their volume may be considered unorthodox by some. Each chapter deals with a specific class of drugs, such as stimulants, depressants, and psychedelics, and describes the different effects of drugs in each category. At the end of each chapter are some precautions for using those drugs and also suggested readings for more information. Aimed at young people and their parents and teachers, this book offers an alternative way of looking at drug use. Recommended for public libraries.-- Kathleen McQuiston, Philadelphia Coll. of Pharmacy & Science
