Buzzed the Straight Facts about the Most Used and Abused Drugs from Alcohol 
to Ecstasy

From the book jacket:

 Based on the most current psychological and pharmacological research 
(little of which has been easily accessible to the general public), Buzzed 
provides a reliable, unbiased look at the use and abuse of legal and illegal 
drugs. Neither a "Just Say No" treatise nor a "How To" manual, Buzzed is 
based on the conviction that people make healthier decisions when they "Just 
Say Know": when they understand in straightforward language how our complex 
brains really work, and why even small doses of various substances can have 
such powerful (and sometimes life-threatening) effects. Buzzed cuts through 
a vast amount of misinformation and propaganda to tell the truth about 
drugs-from alcohol, caffeine, and anti-anxiety pills to heroin, ecstasy, and 
special-K.

 "We are led to believe that simply making high-risk chi this is not always 
the case. mation in order to make smai stand format. What a great resource!"

     and Chair, Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drug Task Force, American College 
Health Association

"Everyone who is interested in drugs will enjoy reading this.... The authors 
approach the subject with neither bias nor exaggeration.... A wonderfully 
interesting and accurate handbook of drug information."

                          College of Pharmacy,

 "A well-written book which dispels some of the myths associated with drug 
abuse. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a readable, factual 
account of the physiological and behavioral effects of drugs of abuse."

rector of the National Institute on Drug Abuse

 "Buzzed is one of the most important books I've ever read ... so 
comprehensive and so readable that I recommend everybody who's interested in 
this area-kids who are taking drugs, parents, professionals working in the 
drug sphere, and, most of all, politicians and legislators-to read it."

I would have submitted it in .rtf but, it wouldn't convert back to .rtf in 
its entirety.
