Show Summary Details


The final chapter involves an assessment of the situation that attempts to put into perspective various proposals. It presents and discusses the five questions, which must be asked to produce a rational drug policy. These questions involve: the justifications for controlling drugs; the likely implications as far as crime is concerned; commercial considerations; the groups of persons, if any, to be separated to receive special attention; and the type of enforcement that should operate to control rule breakers.
