Abstract
 
Description
The third edition of the essential, accessible source for understanding how drugs work and their effects on body and behavior.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. 8 pages of color illustrations - from Amzon
