Despite government inquiries, fierce debate and legislative, illicit drugs remain a major social and political problem in Australia. - The war against drugs has failed resoundingly here and in most other countries. - It is clear that where there is a strong demand for drugs, sources of supply will inevitably emerge. - According to the authors of this provocative analysis, a modern Australian drug policy must build on the realisation that mood-altering drugs are primarily a health and social issue rather than a problem to be tackled by law enforcement agencies. - Support for this approach - from senior politicians, businesspeople, police, doctors, lawyers, clergy and parents who have lost children from drugs - is growing in Australia and around the world. - Indeed, Australia's policy makers are already starting to move away from relying almost entirely on law enforcement. - Written by two experts in the field, this book is about the options for Australia when the law enforcement approach is finally exhausted.;- It includes a ten-point plan to reduce the death, disease, crime and corruption that has become an entrenched part of the drug economy, and concludes with a call for a new realism in Australian drug policy.
