"This is a comprehensive, insightful book written by scholars and authorities from a broad range of disciplines looking at different approaches to drug legalization. It is a must for health and criminal justice professionals, politicians, and all other Americans concerned about solutions to our drug and drug-related problems. Many issues associated with drug legalization, both moral and constitutional, are considered. All perspectives are rooted in scientific data, not in feelings or fears. Hopefully, the book will force thinking people to begin to ask critical questions instead of responding emotionally. It should help concerned citizens think through issues to formulate an alternative to our current drug policy. Once you read this excellent book, you will realize we can no longer do nothing. I highly recommend it for policy makers, physicians, and everyone else concerned about the drug war, especially as it relates to future generations. This book will turn your concern into commitment."
-- Joycelyn Elders, M.D., Former Surgeon General, United States

"Renowned scholars offer compelling logic to the effect that the United States' cure for illegal drug use is worse than the problem. the authors offer reasoned arguments for reform of drug control policies that will be valuable to professionals in the field as well as serve as a base for a national debate on how to end the ill-conceived war on drugs."
-- Joseph D. McNamara, D.P.A., Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and Retired Police Chief, San Jose, CA
