From Chocolate to Morphine: Everything You Need to Know About Mind-Altering Drugs
More than four million copies sold: the definitive guide to drugs and drug use from “America’s best known doctor” (The New York Times).
Cowritten by one of America’s most respected doctors, From Chocolate to Morphine is the authoritative resource covering a wide range of available substances, from coffee to marijuana, antihistamines to psychedelics, steroids to smart drugs, and beyond. Dr. Andrew T. Weil provides the best and most unbiased information available, frankly discussing each drug’s likely effects, precautions for use, and suggested alternatives.
Expanded and updated to include such drugs as Oxycontin, Ecstasy, Prozac, and Ephedra, this edition also addresses numerous issues from the growing methamphetamine and opioid epidemics to the push to legalize medical marijuana, and the overuse of drugs for children diagnosed with ADHD.
Offering facts rather than advocacy, Weil’s trusted bestseller has become “a classic guide to psychotropic drugs” (U.S. News and World Report).
