Straight Facts about Drugs & Drug Abuse

Straight Facts about Drugs & Drug Abuse

This booklet provides information on commonly used psychoactive or mood-altering drugs, both legal & illegal. The first part looks at drug issues from a general point of view, and is divided into six sections covering the following: what a drug is; why people use drugs; when drug use becomes a problem; harmful consequences of drug use; Canada's Drug Strategy; and Canadian drug laws. The second part consists of nine charts designed as a ready reference for detailed information on drugs, including a description of each drug, its origin & medical uses, its short- & long- term effects, its tolerance & dependence properties, and legal status. Each chart covers a major drug group or family: hallucinogens, opioid analgesics, alcohol & inhalants, benzodiazepines, barbiturates/other sleeping pills/other psychotropic drugs, stimulants, cannabis, antidepressants, and anabolic steroids. The appendix contains more information on specific topics associated with drug use. Includes index.
