An Analytic Assessment of U.S. Drug Policy
Publisher: AEI Press | ISBN: 0844741914 | edition 2005 | PDF | 133 pages | 4 mb

In its efforts to control the use of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and other illegal drugs, the United States spends about $35 billion per year in public funds. Almost half a million dealers and users are under incarceration. In this book, David Boyum and Peter Reuter provide an assessment of how well this massive investment of tax dollars and government authority is working. Boyum and Reuter show that America's drug problem is mainly a legacy of the epidemics of heroin, cocaine, and crack use during the 1970s and 1980s, which left us with aging cohorts of criminally active and increasingly sick users. Newer drugs, such as Ecstasy and methamphetamine, perennially threaten to become comparable problems, but so far have not. Using a market framework, the book discusses the nature and effectiveness of efforts to tackle the nation's drug problems. Drug policy has become increasingly punitive, with the number of drug offenders in jail and prison growing tenfold between 1980 and 2003. Nevertheless, there is strikingly little evidence that tougher law enforcement can materially reduce drug use. By contrast, drug treatment services remain in short supply, even though research indicates that treatment expenditures easily pay for themselves in terms of reduced crime and improved productivity. Boyum and Reuter conclude that America's drug policy should be reoriented in several ways to be more effective...

Mark Monaghan, "Evidence versus politics: Exploiting research in UK drug policy making?"
English | ISBN 10: 1847426972 | 2011 | PDF | 200 pages | 7.1 MB

Evidence Versus Politics looks at a contentious area of UK criminal justice and drug policy making. Based on original research and presenting new arguments about policy making processes, the book contributes to the debate about policy making, especially highly politicized issues. It takes as its starting point the notion that evidence is a difficult concept and that there are always different ideas about what should count as evidence in any given context, as well as the widespread disagreement over the role evidence plays in policy making.
