High Drugs, Desire, and a Nation of Users synopsis

Whether drinking Red Bull, relieving chronic pain with psychodone, or Ecstasy experience, Americans engage in a self-healing culture, using psychotropic substances to enhance or manage our mood. It seems that "drug-free America" ​​is a fantasy land that most people do not want to inhabit.

High: Drugs, Desire, and Nation of Users raises fundamental questions about US drug policies and social norms. Why do we support the use of certain drugs and others? Why do we accept the need for opium prescribed by a doctor but not the same thing you bought from the street? This divisive approach constitutes public policy, the justice system, research, social services, and health care.

Despite the decades-long war on drugs, drug use remains relatively unchanged. Ingrid Walker talks about the dormant effects of both criminalization and medical treatment, combining the first person's narrative to show a wide range of users' experiences with drugs. By challenging the current thinking about drugs and users, Walker calls for a new wave of drug policy reform in the United States, beginning with the identification of the full spectrum of drug abuse practices..
