  • NoNonsense Legalizing Drugs by Steve Rolles

    We urgently need to legalize and regulate drugs – this book explains why, and how to do it. 'Of all mankind’s self-inflicted wounds, ‘the war on drugs’ must be one of the most catastrophic . This passionate, articulate, and numerate statement of the case for legalising drugs could not be bettered. I hope it has the wide readership, and receives the careful attention, it deserves.
