The Drug Legalization Debate

The Drug Legalization Debate

First Edition
Edited by:

October 1999 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Retaining the focus and the spirit of the acclaimed First Edition, The Drug Legalization Debate, Second Edition, addresses the major issues involved in the continuing drug legalization debate - including deterrence, treatment, education, and prevention. It also examines drug use trends at the end of the millennium, the use of cannabis as a wonder drug and a look at whether legalizing drugs would really reduce violent crime.

A very good read that provides stimulating debates relating to drug policy and practice. Provides an interesting U.S perspective that allows comparisons to be made with UK and European policy.
