On Dope is a fierce and scholarly polemic in defense of America's current global efforts to control the use and trafficking of illegal drugs. With blistering evidence, the book indicts both a polluted pop culture that glorifies and mainstreams drug use, as well as particular segments of our political establishment for their astonishingly mute and feckless leadership on the issue. More importantly, the astute insights in the book passionately marshal the bold arguments necessary to counter the unceasing deceptions and propaganda of misguided "experts" who claim that the so-called "drug war" has "failed." For those who believe that drugs ought to be legalized, On Dope will change their minds. And for those who already understand that drugs should remain controlled, this book provides a comprehensive and indispensable set of facts that illustrate the complexities of the problem; complexities that do not lend themselves to clever, superficial, external fixes that, usually rooted in preexisting ideologies, reflect theories that many simply want to believe in. With abundant examples from the real world, On Dope is a "radical" defense of our current drug control paradigm that, to paraphrase Churchill, is the worst system ever devised by the wit of man - except all the others.
