Karen McElrath is Professor of Criminal Justice at Fayetteville State University.

Review:


"The topics covered are timely, and the authors represent a variety of perspectives and viewpoints. This is a great text for helping students discover how they view drug use in society. The book gives them the tools to develop their views without telling them what to think."--Amanda Reiman, University of California, Berkeley


"The introductions provide a useful overview and framing through which to read the research itself. There is a lot of qualitative/ethnographic work, which is engaging for students. The articles often challenge students' stereotypes and resist simple solutions or answers."--Andrea Leverentz, University of Massachusetts, Boston
