NoNonsense Legalizing Drugs : How to end the war Paperback / softback
by Steve Rolles
Part of the NoNonsense series
The question is no longer if we should end the war on drugs but how do we do it.We urgently need to legalize and regulate drugs - this book explains why, and how to do it.
The human and financial costs of 50 years of drug war are vast - but there's a better way.
It requires a paradigm shift from an ideological `war on drugs', to a pragmatic system of control and regulation grounded in public health and human rights.
The question is no longer if, but how. This is an accessible blueprint for regulation.This latest addition to the NoNonsense series counts the human and financial cost of fifty years of drug war-and proceeds to outline a better way, looking at where drug law reform is already working, how to overcome the obstacles to reform, and what a post drug war world looks like.Steve Rolles is a writer and policy analyst at drug reform organization, Transform.
He was lead author on After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation.
He is a regular contributor to the public debate on drug policy and law in the media.
