Why are some psychoactive substances regarded as a dangerous drugsa (TM), to be controlled by the criminal law within a global prohibition regime, whilst others a " from alcohol and tobacco, through to those we call a medicinesa (TM) a " are seen and regulated very differently? A History of Drugs traces a genealogy of the construction and governance of the a drug problema (TM) over the past 200 years, calling into question some of the most fundamental ideas in this field: from a addictiona (TM) to the very concept of a drugsa (TM). At the heart of the book is the claim that it was with the emergence in the late eighteenth century of modern liberal capitalism, with its distinctive emphasis on freedom, that our concerns about the consumption of some of these substances began to grow. And, indeed, notions of freedom, free will and responsibility remain central to the drug question today. Pursuing an innovative inter-disciplinary approach, A History of Drugs provides an informed and insightful account of the origins of contemporary drug policy. It will be essential reading for students and academics working in law, criminology, sociology, social policy, history and political science.
Mass Spectral And Gc Data Of Drugs, Poisons, Pesticides, Pollutants, And Their Metabolites - Volume 1 - Methods, Tables, Spectra (m/z 30 - 299)
The world's most comprehensive reference for forensic toxicologists is keeping pace with recent developments in clinical toxicology in its new release: Another 800 new spectra have been added to this gold standard, including novel designer drugs and a broad range of AIDS therapeutics, for a total of 8,650 clinically relevant substances, including 5,200 metabolites. The print edition contains a comprehensive listing of all compounds in order of molecular mass, showing a reference mass spectrum as well as structural formula, exact masse, GC retention times and numerous other experimental data that are relevant to the analytical toxicologist. To aid in compound identification, all substances are classified according to their toxicological categories.
This book explores the outcomes of Sweden's aim to create a 'drug-free society' on the lived realities, health, and welfare of people who use drugs, and on the dynamics of Swedish drug use. Drawing on a wealth of empirical data, including extensive interview testimony and participant observation from years of fieldwork conducted in Sweden, the book debunks the widely-believed myth that Sweden is a progressive, liberal, inclusive state. In contrast to its liberal reputation, Sweden has criminalised the use of drugs and allows for compulsory treatment for those with drug dependencies. The work argues that Swedish law and policy cannot be demonstrated to have decreased drug use as intended, with the law used instead as a means with which to displace people who use drugs from public spaces in Sweden's cities. And where the law has failed in its ambition to decrease drug use, Swedish law and policy have increased and exacerbated the problems, dangers, and harms that can be associated with it. People who use drugs in Sweden experience considerable and endemic difficulties with health, violence, abuse, and social exclusion, stigma, and discrimination as a result of Sweden's drug laws, policies, and discourses.
