  • Book Details

In interlinking case studies, Segre presents and compares the drug policies of three countries - the United States, Sweden, and Italy - and entertains both theoretical and practical objectives.

This new book presents and compares the drug policies in the USA, Sweden and Italy to limit the use and abuse of substances such as marijuana, hashish, cocaine, heroin, and amphetamines. It also focuses on attempts to suppress trafficking in these drugs. A primary objective of the book is to evaluate and explain the respective levels of success of these policies, measured according to conventional criteria. The aim of this comparison is to evaluate the effect of these policies on actual drug use within these countries.
