Description

Mad on Meth: How New Zealand Got Hooked on P by Benedict Collins. 'Only 50 years ago, pure methamphetamine was legally prescribed in New Zealand to anyone looking for a boost. But it wasn't long before P was rebranded as the most dangerous and destructive drug in the world - and New Zealanders cemented as among its biggest users. With dry wit and biring insight, Benedict Collins takes us inside the evolution of meth, from ram raids for pseudoephedrine to homegrown cooks and gangs 'breaking bad', multimillion-dollar busts, and a moral panic that seeded a meth-testing scandal. Meth may be known for unthinkable crimes, but it also services a secret underbelly of white-collar users. How did 'tough on crime' become 'dumb on drugs'? And what does a solution to pure addiction look like?'
