Summary: Drugs are a large part of our modern world. We use them to recover from illness or get rid of a cold, and we abuse them to stay awake or to achieve a ''high.'' Some drugs -- like aspirin, caffeine and nicotine-- are legal, and others -- like marijuana and cocaine -- are prohibited. And though we all rely on drugs to some extent, few of us understand the ways in which these drugs work and why some of us may be prone to addiction. This book explains the biological, psychological, socio morelogical, and health-related effects of drug use and abuse. Solid research supports the frank and informative manner in which the material is presented. The book focuses on all types of drugs -- from inhalants to over-the-counter drugs, to nicotine and caffeine -- and arms readers with the tools to make intelligent decisions and to understand the many ways in which drugs affect their world. Health professionals, teachers and others interested in the topic. less
