Condone or Incarcerate?Book - 2009
The United States has conducted an official War on Drugs for thirty years; a war that it doesn't appear to be winning. Since it began in the 1970s, the percentage of the population imprisoned for drug-related sentences has shot up, as has the length of the sentences. In Illegal Drugs: Condone or Incarcerate? author Richard Worth takes a look at the controversy surrounding the way we handle illegal drugs, and at the debate over whether legalization, treatment, harsher sentences, or some combination of all of these may be the solution Book jacket.
