Publisher Comments:

Drugs in American Society is a sociological introduction to the use of psychoactive substances in the United States that takes the focus of attention on drug use out of the lab and into the street. Throughout the book, personal accounts tell the stories of drug use and the impact that it has on the lives of users. The book also contrasts the image of drugs in society, particularly in the news media, and the reality of drug use itself.
