Description

Newsweek takes an in-depth look at America's drug war, discovering that "drug addiction is increasingly being viewed more as a disease than a crime." The article examines a variety of topics ranging from drug treatments to how an addiction affects one's brain. "An addiction brain is different- physically different, chemically different from a normal brain . . . addictive drugs alter the brain's pleasure circuits." Reporters also investigate drug turnover rates and why many Americans relapse. In addition, Newsweek reports on the importance of anti-drug messages and how they have "significantly reduced usage among children in every age group."
