About this book

This book comprises of fourteen specially commissioned essays on the theme of drug abuse and the control of drug use in Britain. It analyses and appraises the two strands of that which has been termed the 'British system' of control, namely, prescription to, and rehabilitation of, registered users and enforcement action against illegal users. It also examines issues of contemporary relevance in the drug control debate, including the economics of drug control, drug education, the impact of AIDS, new trends in legislation and decriminalisation.
