Beschreibung:

This book provides a comprehensive overview of drug policy in the United States from the early 1900s through the present day, providing historical and social context through the telling of the colorful and often tragic stories of the events and individuals throughout this period.
In the mid to late 19th century, "patent medicines" typically containing large proportions of alcohol and fortified with cocaine, heroin, morphine, or opium were commonly available. In the 1960s, a different kind of drug abuse became widespread in America. Today, despite decades of concerted efforts to control or eradicate illicit drug use in the United States, illegal and dangerous drugs remain easy to obtain, and substance abuse is still a pervasive problem.
