Framing Drug Use examines the forces that shape the way we use drugs. The book analyses space, streetscapes, languages, signs, photographs, stories, routines, social organisations and the frameworks of everyday life, which contribute to drug-related harm. This variously implicates the forces of economics, emotion, physical pleasure and culture. John Fitzgerald importantly proposes a new set of tools and a new framework for analyzing drug problems. The new framework suggests that care, compassion and responsibility might come to replace blame and punishment as central terms that define how we approach drug control.
