In contemporary societies, controversies abound in relation to what counts as proper and improper drug use as well as how drugs should be controlled, regulated, supplied, encouraged and discouraged. Within this module, we explore these controversies and focus on arguments about the following: normalization and drug use; a "rational approach" to drug-related harms; prohibition, decriminalization and legalization of drug use; the potential for "responsible" drug use; drugs and identity; medications and medicalization; and drug-assisted human enhancement. Through addressing these arguments, we explore some fundamental questions to do with human nature, freedom, responsibility, and risk-taking.
