Buzzed The Straight Facts About the Most Used and Abused Drugs from Alcohol to Ecstasy Synopsis

Fully revised and updated, this no-nonsense handbook includes the most recent discoveries about drugs, including new information on the energy-drinks craze, prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Ambien, the date-rape drug GHB, and the unique effects of some drugs on the adolescent brain. Scientifically accurate and easy to read, ?Buzzed? gives the most balanced, objective information available on the most often used and abused drugs, from alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine to heroin, Ecstasy, and methamphetamine, and it provides a clear understanding of how drugs work and the consequences of their use. Neither a Just Say No treatise nor a How to manual, ?Buzzed? is based on the conviction that people make better decisions and accurate information at hand.
