Course #: SOCIOL 367
Class #: 12207
This course considers drug use in a variety of social contexts, comparative approaches to addressing drug use, and the evolution of drug policy it the United States. We will consider the origins and consequences of the use and abuse of consciousness-altering substances, as well as the relationship between substance use and property and violent offending. We will consider how society defines the harms associated with drug use and how social and political constructions of drugs as a social problem shape legislation, policy debates, and drug policy enforcement.
