6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A facinating and comprehensive guide that provides students and general readers with the resources necessary to define, understand, and research issues related to drug abuse. Includes a bibliography, glossary, chronology, biographical listing, appendixes with graphs, and an index. In 1973 President Richard Nixon declared an all-out global war against "the drug menace." In the ensuing decades, the War on Drugs has grown rapidly, with annual federal spending reaching $13.2 billion in 1995. The impact of the drug war on every aspect of American society has been tremendous. Its casualties can be counted on street corners, in an ever-growing prison population and, many would argue, in an erosion of fundamental rights. With truthful information hard to find, there seems to be no clear way to measure progress in the drug war, let alone to declare victory. Drug Abuse explores all aspects of this complex and important issue in an unbiased and well-organized manner. It identifies specific drugs, such as alcohol, tobacco, designer drugs, and performance-enhancing drugs, and covers the history of U.S. drug regulation, current approaches to treating addiction, and the way drug abuse has shaped public policy. This valuable reference examines laws such as the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act; the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act; the 1970 Controlled Substances Act; and court cases such as Leary v. United States; United States v. Dunn; and Ferguson v. City of Charleston. It explains the role various federal agencies play in regulating drugs. Extensive appendixes include a list of acronyms of organizations, drugs, and other terms related to discussions of drug abuse; a list of commonly used street names for drugs; graphs showing the extent of drug abuse and enforcement efforts in the United States; an excerpt of the 1970 Controlled Substances Act; and excerpts from the 2001 United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers' Cooperative

Although the Internet traces its origins back more than 35 years, the online world as it is known today is only a decade old. Since the mid-1990s, email and Internet access have been transformed from "techie preoccupations to everyday activities. Unfortunately, wider public access has led to some problems. The distribution of child pornography and the use of Internet chat rooms by pedophiles to gain access to children are two of the best-known and most feared forms of Internet predation. Recent large-scale operations conducted by the FBI, Interpol, and other law enforcement agencies have netted hundreds of alleged offenders. Other types of crime include cyber stalking and harassment using the Internet, frauds and scams carried out online or by email, identity theft, and other crimes related to personal information. Internet Predators discusses the struggle to combat criminal and antisocial activity online and to prevent victimization without excessively restricting the freedom that has helped make the online world a vital part of the U.S. economy and society. It focuses on the individual online user and on what service providers, regulatory agencies, law enforcement officials, legislators, and others can and should do to protect the online public.
