The 'war on drugs' is a complete failure that is destroying lives all over the world. It is time to take control.

Legalizing drugs does not mean a free-for-all. It involves ensuring that substances are safe and taking distribution out of the hands of the criminal networks who currently benefit from an illegal market with a turnover of $320 billion a year.

This book is not just a litany of the damage done over the past four decades of drug war—it assesses the careful, progressive attempts at reform by some governments and, more important still, it looks forward to examine exactly how legalized drugs will be produced, distributed and regulated in future. The change is going to come—but this book will put you well ahead of the curve.
