Description

Drugs are everywhere--on our streets, in our homes, and in our schools--but straight facts about drugs are not. Drugs: The Straight Facts fills this void with candid discussions that emphasize a historical and scientific approach to learning about drugs, their use, and their effect on the user's health. A simple chemical modification to morphine in 1898 brought a new drug, heroin, to the world. This book provides a thorough history of heroin and describes its effects on health and the body.
