Abstract

This authoritative overview of drugs and society today examines: whether a process of `normalization' of drugs and drug use is under way; the debate over prohibition versus legislation; `drugs' and `users' as `other' or `dangerous'; drugs and dance cultures; drug use among young women; images of `race' and drugs; medical responses to drugs; policing strategies and controlling drug users; drug control and sport; and the question of prohibition versus liberalization.
