Legalising drugs : Debates and dilemmas, Paperback / softback Book

Legalising drugs : Debates and dilemmas Paperback / softback


Government policy has steadfastly been against drug legalisation, but increasingly critics have argued that this is unsustainable.

This book is a timely examination of the issues this raises. Numerous suggestions have been offered. Some seek complete legalisation, others a more modified form, yet still others want an increasing commitment to harm reduction policies. Philip Bean examines the implications of these proposals for individuals, especially juveniles, and for society, when set against crime reduction claims.

He concludes with the necessary questions a rational drug policy must answer.

The book will be essential reading for students and academics in criminology, sociology and social policy, as well as policy makers, practitioners and the general public.
