Editorial Reviews

Congress has spent billions of dollars on more police, prosecutors, drug courts, and prisons, but illegal drugs are as readily available today as they were 10 years ago. Essays in this collection are designed to stimulate a new debate on this failed policy. While none of the contributors view drug legalization as a panacea, they argue for dealing with adult drug users in a more equitable manner. They examine the Constitution and the drug war, discuss the failure of drug prohibition from law enforcement perspectives, and investigate the political and social effects of the drug war. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
