It’s getting to the point where only a rare day goes by when something about Americans’ use of drugs and alcohol isn’t featured in the news. Whether it’s discussions about the dangers of new synthetic drugs or the New York Times continually challenging the drug war, there has never been a better time to offer your insights about drug and alcohol history. Especially with the 2016 elections rapidly approaching and marijuana legalization poised to be a topic of debate, there is a growing, and increasingly interested, audience for reliable, historically-accurate news about America’s (and the world’s) use of intoxicants. And Points is going to be there, leading the way.
We’re open to any and all ideas – national, transnational, international; modern or ancient; drugs and/or alcohol; treatment, addiction, recreational use. We’d love to hear voices from abroad, and from people who are pushing the boundaries in drug and alcohol scholarship. A post here at Points can reach over 8,000 readers a month, and we’re working to bridge the gap between academic and public scholarship. It’s an exciting time, with exciting possibilities, and we want you to be a part of it.
