What do we think about drugs? ISBN: 9780750234023
Published by Wayland (What Do We Think About series), 1999
A clear difference is made between medicine and illegal drugs, but at the same time there is emphasis on taking medicine only as it is prescribed. The choice between a healthy lifestyle and one of dependency and ill health is accentuated, as well as the importance of keeping control of one's own body. There is nothing about individual illegal drugs. Good colour photographs drive the information home. There is a page of notes for parents and teachers, a glossary, an index, a list of further books and an excellent list of organisations that will be particularly useful for teachers.
