Drugs on the College Campus. A Guide for College Administrators.
Nowlis, Helen H.
This guide to drugs on the college campus provides accurate information to help administrators and other college officials understand and cope with the use of drugs by college students. The problem is defined, and facts about drugs, and the implications and issues occasioned by their use, are presented. Information is also offered in the following areas: (a) the student and his culture, (b) drugs and the law, and (c) the response of the educational institution to student drug use. Approximately one-quarter of this guide is devoted to a simplified summary of the current basic pharmacological information about the drugs which are of major concern (including barbituates, amphetamines, marihuana, LSD, and alcohol). Included in the Appendix are a glossary, a bibliography, a list of films suitable for college students, and a comparison chart of the major substances used for mind alteration. (EK)
