Summary

The Pathology of Drug Abuse, Second Edition is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the pathology, toxicology, and pharmacology of commonly abused drugs. The book also offers detailed information on the origin, history, and production techniques used to make these drugs. As in the first edition, emphasis remains focused on the investigation of drug-related deaths and on practical approaches to the detection of drug abuse. The medical complications associated with each of the abused drugs are discussed in some detail as well. Individual chapters deal with cocaine, other naturally occurring stimulants, synthetic stimulants, hallucinogens, narcotics, anabolic steroids, and solvent abuse. Approximately 800 new references have been added since the publication of the first edition. Numerous new photomicrographs and drawings have been added, and many of the illustrations from the first edition have been redrawn to enhance clarity.
