From Chocolate to Morphine is the de#64257;nitive guide to drugs and drug use from one of Americas most respected and best-known doctors. This enormously popular book the best and most authoritative resource for unbiased information about how drugs affect the mind and the body covers a wide range of available substances, from coffee to marijuana, antihistamines to psychedelics, steroids to smart drugs, and discusses likely effects, precautions, and alternatives. Now expanded and updated to cover such drugs as oxycontin, Ecstasy, Prozac, and ephedra and to address numerous ongoing issues, including the United States war on drugs, marijuana for therapeutic use, the overuse of drugs for children diagnosed with ADHD, and more, From Chocolate to Morphine is an invaluable resource.


No one can argue that our society likes altered states of consciousness-even if it's just a chocolate rush from a candy bar. This book is a fascinating primer and history on mind-altering substances. It doesn't advocate or judge; it just presents the risks and benefits, non-hysterically, on the substances floating around out there today, from magic mushrooms to marijuana to cold remedies. Very few of us are truly "drug free," so you might want to get the scoop on what's going in before you ingest it. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Ilene Rosoff
