An examination of the extent of drug crimes in England and some suggestion on programs that may lead to less drug use and trafficking. The author presents profiles of the populations that use drugs, and examines such programs as criminal sentencing, drug interdiction efforts, coercive treatment, and mandatory testing. Arguing that most efforts to curb drug use have failed, he argues for the adoption of American style drug courts that offer offenders chances at treatment. Distributed by ISBS.
