Description of this Electronic Book

Illicit drug use is a significant justice, health, economic and social welfare issue. This book examines the prevalence of illicit drug use in Australia, and presents a range of arguments in the drug policy reform debate, including the questionable deterrence value of criminal sanctions versus controversial proposals for the relaxation of drug laws through decriminalisation and legalisation. Should the law remain tough on drugs, or go softer on hard drugs? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
