    Summary: 
    It is clear that national attitudes about drug use, from tobacco and alcohol to heroin, have never been easy to resolve. Some argue for strict control, some for taxation and regulation, and some for legalization. This set takes a close look at the history of this country s drug policies, treatment options, and epidemics alcohol, opium, morphine, heroin, marijuana, crack cocaine, and the opioid crisis and includes documents related to contemporary issues such as corporate accountability, controversial treatment, sentencing, racial and economic factors, and organized crime. The two-volume set includes in-depth chapters that provide a thorough commentary of significant primary source documents. (Publisher)
