Parachini, Allan
The purposes of this booklet are: (1) to serve as a commentary on the evolution, state and problems of drug reporting; (2) to make the journalist aware of the prominent issues and some of the major misconceptions common among reporters, readers and/or listeners; (3) to serve as a guide to the fundamental background literature of the field; (4) to act as a source guide to potential interview or reference persons; and (5) to be a guide to terminology. It focuses primarily on the class of drugs which, for nonmedical use, are and have been illegal. Additionally, it contains research tips on drug reporting, a list of nationally important resource organizations, and lists of resources at both the individual and the state level. Information is extensive and well organized. (Author/PFS)
