Edited by Phillip Smith, Drug Reporter provides coverage of drug policy in its many manifestations: marijuana policy and medical marijuana; the opioid crisis; new psychoactive substances and psychedelics; stimulants; sentencing policy and corrections; drug testing of students, workers, and benefits-seekers; and the intersection of drug policy with reproductive rights—as well as drug culture (mainly marijuana; psychedelics and stimulants to a lesser degree) and health issues that relate to drug policy, such as addiction and addiction treatment, and health benefits/negatives of various substances.
