"Probably the most sensible and readable book informing drug policy ever useful to lay readers as it is to researchers, clinicians, and policy makers. This is 'drug education' at its best--an extraordinarily well-written book that belongs in high school libraries, on university reading lists across disciplines, on the desks of policy makers, and in treatment centers."

--Constance Weisner, DrPH, MSW, professor of psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco

"An impressive blend of erudition, experience, and common invaluable resource."

--Marc A. Schuckit, M.D., distinguished professor of psychiatry, School of Medicine University of California, San Diego; director, Alcohol Research Center, VA San Diego Healthcare System

"Experts in the addiction field will recognize the wisdom in these pages."

--Keith Humphreys, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine
