The Drug Legalization Debate

Edited by:

192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
If marijuana were legalized the drug problem would be eased. This is an assertion which this volume discusses in full. It describes the history of drug use and abuse and the US government's approach to drug control including deterrence, treatment, education and prevention. Articles confront topics such as the risk of a `war on drugs', an enlightened legalization policy, and ethical and legal dilemmas.
