Quaaludes: The Quest for Oblivion
I snagged this from a teen section. Don’t you just love the creepy cover? I am not even sure what to say. I wonder if today’s teens are still seduced by this quest for oblivion. The content of this book is heavy on charts, graphs and icky black and white photos of people doing a variety of drugs. Interestingly, none of the pictures feature quaalude abuse. I get the feeling that they slapped quaaludes on the front of a generic “drugs are bad” book. Of course drug information is probably suspect after 5 years, so I am going to go out on limb and suggest that perhaps this book’s time has come and gone. Weed it, please!
