Overview

Roman (Justice Policy Center, Urban Institute), Ahn-Redding (a doctoral candidate in Justice, Law, and Society at American U.), and Simon (public affairs and law, American U.) present a comparative overview of drug policies and trafficking in 24 countries in North America, Central and South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific. Avoiding much in the way of analysis, each country profile contains rather straightforward textual summaries of drug offenses and the law, extent and patterns of use, AIDS and IV drug use, law enforcement, and drug policy, in addition to some statistical tables.
