- THE USER:
your child or theirs? your friend or you?
- THE STUDENT POT PARTY:
what it's really like.
- THE SCHOOL:
big or small, East or West -- which ones?
- COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS:
what they don't know and won't know.
- THE PROBLEM:
a nationwide tragedy or bungling myopic law-making? Today thousands of students get away with it but there are some unlucky ones who will spend a few semesters in jail. Your roommate, perhaps, or, if you are a parent, your child. Everyone is a victim, the haunted student, the fearful parent, the perplexed administrator, the overworked police -- victims of an unwillingness to face facts. This book sets out these facts with daring frankness.
