Product description

Review

" There is no talking down or trying to be hip in this guide to recreational drugs. A sound, thorough, authoritative resource that, though aimed primarily at college students, will be a solid asset in every public library. " -- Booklist " Students need clear, detailed, comprehensive factual information in order to make smart decisions, and ?Buzzed ?provides it all in an easy-to-understand format. What a great resource! " -- Ellen Gold, chair of the Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drug Task Force, American College Health Association

Synopsis

Together, the first two editions of "Buzzed" have sold over 120,000 copies - and now the authors have revised and updated the book to include the most recent discoveries about drugs, including new information on the energy drinks craze, prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Ambien, and the date-rape drug GHB. Scientifically accurate and easy to read, this no-nonsense handbook gives the most balanced, objective information available on the most often used and abused drugs, from alcohol, caffeine and nicotine to heroin, Ecstasy and methamphetamine. In both quick-reference summaries and in-depth analysis, it reports on how these drugs enter the body, how they manipulate the brain, their short-term and long-term effects, the kinds of 'high' they produce, and the circumstances in which they can be deadly.Neither a 'Just Say No' treatise nor a 'How to' manual, "Buzzed" is based on the conviction that people make better decisions with accurate information at hand.
