  1. Substance abuse and control in the United States : ethical and legal issues.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.

    In 1986, the United States began to wage its most recent War on Drugs.

    This has involved establishing various policies and making investments to implement these policies and approaches.

    In general, the U.S. has taken a tough-guy stand to drug abuse and control that emphasizes punishment, restriction, and « social warfare », as opposed to a public health oriented position.

    Current policy reflects a « quick fix » solution to a complex problem, which may partially explain its failure and why we appear to be losing the War on Drugs.
