Drugs and Drug Policy: The Control of Consciousness Alteration
Drugs and Drug Policy, Second Edition provides a cross-national perspective on the use and regulation of both legal and illegal drugs. This engaging text examines and critiques drug policies in the United States and abroad in terms of their scope, goals, and effectiveness. Authors Clayton J. Mosher and Scott Akins also discuss the physiological, psychological, and behavioral effects of legal and illicit drugs; the patterns and correlates of use; and theories of the “causes” of drug use.

Yes, what wasteful spending and what's the point? Over 200,000 people die every year from FDA "approved" drugs. The ones dying from non-FDA drugs (and over-the-counter drugs) is minuscule. One day MD's will go to jail for killing people with FDA drugs. Hopefully soon. Great write up!
