Summary
For decades the U.S. has conducted a costly, escalating - and largely futile - war on illegal drugs. Author Dirk Chase Eldredge, a conservative Republican, examines how and why America is losing the war on drugs. He shows how the drug war has led only to overcrowded courts and prisons, rising crime, official corruption, eroded civil rights and race relations, and new public-health crises. In Ending the War on Drugs, Eldredge makes a case for an alternative policy: carefully controlled legalization, with resulting income used to fund greatly expanded drug education, prevention, research and treatment programs. He addresses head-on such questions as: Would legalization expand drug use? Would it expose more children to drugs?
