Buzzed by Cynthia Kuhn, PhD, Scott Swartzwelder PhD, and Wilkie Wilson, PhD
The third edition of the essential, accessible source for understanding how drugs work and their effets on the body and behavior.
Fully revised and updated, this no-nonsense handbook includes the most recent discoveries about drugs, including the new information on the energy-drinks craze, prescription drugs such as OxyContin and 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 vlear 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 with accurate information at hand.
