About this product
- DescriptionThere are currently nearly half a million drug offenders incarcerated in US jails, more than the entire EU prison population. Added to the financial consequences of current drug policy there is the ermous human cost. Police corruption, organized crime, contempt for the law and drugs made dangerous because they are illegal and thus t subject to proper controls are other consequences of current drug policies. Politicians from all sides of the political spectrum are w beginning to ask: is it worth it? In arguing that criminalization is unjust, Douglas Husak explodes many of the myths that surround drug use. In some years, more than half of high school seniors take drugs, yet the US is t overrun with drug-crazed addicts. Horror stories of the dangers of drug use abound, but the truth is more prosaic; although recreational drugs are sometimes bad for users, there are between 80 and 90 million US citizens who have used illicit drugs without ill effects.
- Author BiographyDouglas Husak is Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. He is the author of Drugs and Rights and Philosophy of Criminal Law.
