Drug Scene Syllabus, A Manual on Drugs and Volatile Chemical of Potential Abuse.
Johnson, Robert B.; And Others
A brief historical review of attempts to control the abuse of drugs introduces a series of tables listing pertinent information about drugs of potential abuse. Each table provides the common commercial and slang names for the drugs, their medical and legal classification, their potential for emotional and physical dependence, whether the user develops tolerance to the initial levels taken, indicated medical uses, the common physical and psychological effects, clues to their abuse, and some of the dangers of the drug. There are separate tables for the following drugs: alcohol, amphetamines and other stimulants, cocaine, hallucinogens (psychotomimetics), marihuana, narcotics, sedative-hypnotics, tranquilizers, and volatile depressants (organic solvents). A package which contains enlarged versions of each of the tables is available separately. There is an extensive list of references to the technical literature classified according to type of drug.
