Description
Summary:"The war on drugs led by the United States has failed: drugs remain purer, cheaper and more readily available than when the war on drugs began in 1971. The drug war has also resulted in extreme levels of violence as drug traffickers and organized criminals compete for control of territory. Prohibitionist policies have destroyed the lives of millions of people as prisons warehouse drug offenders. This important volume represents an effort to map new approaches to drug policies.

The volume also provides a number of policy solutions and alternatives to the current drug strategies"--
