Chasing the scream : the first and last days of the war on drugsChasing the scream : the first and last days of the war on drugs
by Johann Hari

This book will change the way you think about drug policy and addictions forever. Hari goes right back to the roots of the drug war - virtually created by one man in order to create power in a government department. Hari draws on solid research as well as personal experiences - in downtown Vancouver, in the free drug clinics in Switzerland, from the epicenter of Mexico's drug war, to the complete legalization of drugs in Portugal. If you're interested in racism, poverty, addiction, prison reform, public health policy - or if you're just interested in human beings, this book is for you. - Charlotte, Kitchener Public Library
