BRIEFING PAPER: The War on Drugs: Creating crime, enriching criminals – 14 pages

Via Scoop.itDrugs, Society and Human Rights

This briefing summarises the crime-related costs stemming from the war on drugs. The battle cry to fight a “war against drugs” has had such political potency that its negative costs have undergone little proper scrutiny.   Evaluation of drug law enforcement still invariably focuses on process measures, like arrests and drug seizures, rather than meaningful indicators that might demonstrate failure – such as levels of availability, or health and social costs, including the creation of crime.
