The Drug Paradox
An Introduction To The Sociology Of Psychoactive Substances In Canada
de Rick Csiernik e Tara Bruno
Sobre o livro
Why are some drugs considered socially acceptable while others are demonized? The Drug Paradox examines both the empirically founded and socially constructed nature of drugs and drug use. The authors discuss how the punitive approach to drug use in Canada continues to exist alongside strategies of harm reduction, though this only impedes Canada's ability to deal effectively with substance misuse.
