Drugs – Without the Hot Air

This review of David Nutt’s new book, Drugs – Without the Hot Air, has some interesting reflects on drug education.

Another target audience of the book is those who have worked with the consequences of drugs in our society: doctors, social workers, politicians, police, and of course, teachers. I was intrigued to learn more from a senior educator about our persistent methods of drug tutelage, and choosing to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, the teacher I spoke to was vehement in his opinions:

“For many many years I had no direct understanding and had to deliver a sort of pat ‘send‘ on the topic. Current methods are fear-inducing, and it appears to be delivered by people who have no knowledge of the territory.”
