Drugs in American Society provides a holistic introduction to drug use in the United States.

This edition presents the most current research, data, and statistics on drug use and discusses the latest trends involving drugs, from the decriminalization and mainstreaming of marijuana to the opioid epidemic that has led to a startling rise in overdose deaths.
