Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A former assistant surgeon general, drug policy analysts, substance abuse treatment personnel, and researchers offer nine perspectives on the failing US war on illegal drugs. Positions along the policy debate continuum are categorized in a historical and shifting drug use pattern context as: prohibition, harm reduction, medicalization, legalization/regulation, and decriminalization. Within the consensus that "war is still not the answer," questions are addressed about whether legalizing drugs would reduce violent crime and if there is a middle ground in the marijuana legalization debate.
