Photographic paperback binding with black and white coloured titles to the front panel and pink and yellow coloured titles to the back strip. Quoting Utne Reader from the rear panel "Lenson analyses our culture's love-hate relationship with mood-altering substances from the user's point of view. He writes about the differences between 'drugs of desire' (mainly cocaine, crack, and speed) and 'drugs of pleasure' (marijuana and hallucinogens). The former he sees as reflecting the main ideology of Western culture-consumerism in that the frequent uses tend to fixate on acquiring more to the exclusion of everything else, while the latter tend to interdict the consumerist mind-set by letting users save it every day activities and objects already at hand."
