Many of the effects of substance abuse are explained throughout the book, and there is good information about the medical use of marijuana, including a chart with laws, fees, and possession limits in various states. In the final “References” section, the authors list suggested reading and websites. This information and references contained within Drugs and Alcohol 101 provide a good basis for school reports or papers on substance abuse and related issues.
Drugs and Alcohol 101 was not written for a teenage audience only; it contains material specific to caregivers and mentors and all of the information is useful to anyone interested in learning about or dealing with drug issues.
Bottom Line: Would I buy Drugs and Alcohol 101? Yes, if I were again in a situation in which I worked with adolescents, or if my children or grandchildren required the information for any reason.
