Key to ending the war
The question is no longer if we should end the War on Drugs, but how we do it.

In this 2017 addition to the New Internationalist 'NoNonsense' book series, Transform's Senior Policy Analyst, Steve Rolles, counts the human and financial cost of fifty years of the drug war, offering a concise guide to a alternative ways forward: looking at where drug law reform is already working, how to overcome the obstacles to reform and what a post-prohibition world looks like. It includes a foreword by former Colombian President Cesar Gaviria.

'This book brings a welcome dose of pragmatic realism to a debate long dominated by misplaced ideology and knee-jerk politics.'
- Professor David Nutt
