Ending the War on Drugs: A Solution for America | [Dirk Chase Eldredge]

Ending the War on Drugs: A Solution for America

Author Dirk Eldredge demonstates how the drug war has led only to overcrowded courts and prisons, rising crime, official corruption, eroded civil rights and race relations, and new public-health crises. He makes the case for an alternative strategy: tightly controlled legalization accompanied by expanded drug education, prevention, research, and treatment programs.

    "So good it makes you angry"

    This book was very good but listening to it couldn't help but make me feel angry with all of the silly drug laws. Sad to know we spend millions to stop people from abusing cocaine despite the fact that more people have in-grown toe nails. We clearly need to invest on prevention and education as opposed to continuing to arrest all of our citizens!
