The future with amphetamines

(p.173) Chapter 9 The future with amphetamines
Speed, Ecstasy, Ritalin

Leslie Iversen

Oxford University Press

The previous chapters have reviewed the various uses and abuses of amphetamines in different societies. These man-made chemicals had a great impact on life in the 20th century and seem set to continue as major players — for good as well as evil. This concluding chapter attempts to put some perspective on the use and abuse of these drugs and attempts some predictions of future trends. It also explores the medical uses of amphetamines, particularly in cases of ADHD; the continuing spread of illicit amphetamine abuse; and the possible treatments for amphetamine addiction.
