This popular book, regularly cited in court proceedings, has established itself as a core reference on the laws of drug misuse and trafficking. Offering a balance of law and procedure, it is relied upon by all sectors of the criminal legal system. With its impartial approach, both defence lawyers and the police draw on its clear guidance.

It covers all offences as well as evidence, sentencing and confiscation orders (drug trafficking), and also provides clinical information on the different types of drugs available to assist the practitioner in this highly complex clinical side of the law.

  • Includes helpful flow charts and diagrams showing mechanics of civil recovery and summary of controls under existing drug legislation
  • Fully updated to reflect the latest changes, including the Drugs Act 2005, the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 and the Criminal Justice Act 2003
