This book by the publishers of Consumer Reports is the most informative book on drugs and addictions on the market. Originally published in 1972, it documents in great detail not only the impact of drug use, but also the greater harms that arise from our efforts to Prohibit these drugs. It as is if we never learned from the massive increase in crime and and bloodshed from our disastrous thirteen year experience with Alcohol Prohibition.

It has several chapters dedicated to each drug from caffeine to heroin and amphetamines. A must read for anyone who wishes to develop pragmatic solutions to America's drug use dilemma. In almost every instance our policies dealing with illicit drug use CAUSE more harms than use of the drugs themselves.

This should be required reading for every member of Congress. It is amazing that so much of what we "know about drugs" is wrong.
