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.

No one can argue that our society likes altered states of consciousness-even if it's just a chocolate rush from a candy bar. This book is a fascinating primer and history on mind-altering substances. It doesn't advocate or judge; it just presents the risks and benefits, non-hysterically, on the substances floating around out there today, from magic mushrooms to marijuana to cold remedies. Very few of us are truly "drug free," so you might want to get the scoop on what's going in before you ingest it. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Ilene Rosoff (The WomanSource Catalog & Review)

This book gives you a much better idea of what is reasonably safe (or even perfectly safe), vs what the hell to stay away from.
One point I found brilliantly stated, was how a drug is perceived is based far more on the culture/crowd it is associated with, than by its actual potential for harm/dependency.
Also, it becomes very clear that many of the regularly prescribed drugs are far more dangerous than some of the schedule 1 drugs!?
It is very informative, and shows the truth as well as it can.
It also has a great section of the drugs that arise naturally within the human body, and how external drugs just trigger your body to notice the highs etc. I learned alot from this book. I've gone on to check for Weil's other works, he is so great. It talks about all the drugs, their safety, myths etc... most importantly the truth behind them, which is not influenced by propaganda.
I highly recommend this work.
