Pedagogical Patronizing of the Pharmacodynamic Promises of Illicit Drugs.
Belcastro, Philip A.
Journal of Drug Education, v22 n1 p9-13 1992
Reviews popular drug education textbooks and curricula. Finds most juxtapose physiologic effects of licitly manufactured drugs under headings representing illicitly prepared drugs, ignoring literature reporting that illicit drugs contain adulterants and substitutes. Concludes that one cannot extrapolate results of licitly pure drug lots administered at precisely measured doses to represent pharmacodynamics of illegally prepared drug lots. (Author/NB)
