[About the book]
Informed debate on how, why, or even if, drugs and those who use them should be controlled, needs an insight into the background of such controls, how effective they have been, and what reasonable alternatives there may be. Providing such an insight, this book reviews the important aspects of past and current drug control policies in Britain and America. The international compliment of expert contributors explore the rationality of the reasoning which produced the initial controls, the continuing relevance of those currently employed, and provide alternative scenarios for future policy.
