            Drug Law Reform Debate (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Illicit drug use in Australia is a significant justice, health, economic and social welfare issue. Relaxation of drug laws has been proposed by a number of reform groups, criminologists and commentators in response to concerns that existing government policies and criminal sancti...ons have been a failure. Opponents claim that such a relaxation of laws, including decriminalisation and legalisation, will remove the deterrent effect and increase drug use and unleash even greater drug-related problems into the community. This book examines the prevalence of illicit drug use, and presents a range of arguments in the drug policy reform debate. Should the law remain tough on drugs, or go softer on hard drugs? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index. Titles in the Issues in Society series are individual resource books which provide an overview on a specific subject comprised of facts and opinions. The information in this resource book is not from any single author, publication or organisation. The unique value of the Issues in Society series lies in its diversity of content and perspectives.
