From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-10--Adint pulls no punches in describing the grim situations in which teens involved in illegal activities may find themselves. His unique and informative title offers an overview of the juvenile-justice system from arrest to sentencing, covering rehabilitation, detention facilities, and penalties for drug-related crimes. He encourages readers to make wise choices and to seek successful and satisfying lives through educational attainment. Smith discusses the special problems that peyote and magic mushrooms present for American society. Unfortunately, she begins with an awkward, fictionalized episode in which a pair of Anglo teens ask Native Americans about peyote and are chastised for their disrespect. She warns of the dangers and risks to users who have not undergone serious preparation, and explains the possibility of poisoning or fatal overdose. Common beliefs that ``natural'' plants are safe and that they heighten sexual drive are refuted, and the author urges teens to seek religious enlightenment within their own cultures and to avoid spiritual ``short cuts'' that often turn out to be illusory. She is unclear about the current legal status of these drugs in regard to Native American rites, however. The books are illustrated with average-quality, black-and-white and full-color photographs.
