Summary Annotation This volume breaks new ground in applying the current body of knowledge in the study of pharmaceuticals, personal care products and their environmental impact to the assessment of the magnitude and extent of the use of illicit drugs at the local community level. It offers new insights on theuse of environmental monitoring and includes discussion on waste treatment, ecotoxicological issues, and risk assessment.
