Synopsis: Book by Cohen, Susan

From School Library Journal: Grade 7-12 Believing that straight talk without moralizing or scare tactics will help young people make informed decisions, the Cohens discuss the history, effects, and consequences of legal and illegal drugs that are used for recreational purposes. Alcohol is mentioned, but for further information readers are referred to the authors' A Six Pack and a Fake I.D. (Evans, 1986). The Cohens address cigarettes, caffeine, and steroids with the same thoroughness as narcotics, cocaine, and marijuana, supporting the text with studies and surveys and telling readers when the research is inconclusive. Hypothetical cases are interspersed with actual ones (e.g., basketball player Len Bias) to illustrate what could and does happen to drug users. The authors show how the political and emotional climate of the U.S. has determined the legality and regulation of certain drugs. There is a chapter on how to find help and an interesting bibliography of books and films. A more personable approach than Woods' Drug Use and Drug Abuse (Watts, 1986), and more up to date than What You Should Know About Drugs and Drug Abuse (Scholastic, 1987) by Harvey Greenberg, this is a book that should be available to teens.
