Drugs and alcohol are closely related to poor school performance, poor health, work-related stresses, crime and delinquency. Drugs and alcohol have been shown to be prominent factors in exposure to HIV infection--whether through intravenous drug use or unprotected, high-risk sexual relations.

Regardless of all the known hazards, the incidence of drug and alcohol use continues to rise in the United States. This book reveals the nature and magnitude of drug and alcohol use in American society, and public opinion on drugs, alcohol, and substance abuse.

It examines the illicit drug trade, the war on drugs, and law enforcement. The connection between substance abuse and criminality is addressed, with special studies on prisoners, teenagers, minorities, women, and college campuses. Accompanied by numerous tables and figures.
