'After the War on Drugs: Tools for the Debate' is the essential guide to making the case for drug policy reform from a position of confidence and authority. It is based on Transform's extensive experience of debating the issue in public forums. For over fifteen years we have discussed and debated drug policy with UK and US drug tsars, as well as mayors, MPs, ministers and even the prime minister.
The purpose of the book is to:
- Reframe the debate by moving it away from polarised ideological positions and putting it squarely in the arena of rational, evidence-based policy thinking
- Provide the analytical framework and language to challenge entrenched prohibitionist policy positions with confidence and clarity, and to put forward the case for alternative policies including legally regulated drug markets
- Guide you to the facts you will need to support this progressive policy position
"Transform continues to lead the debate on drug law reform. This guide will be invaluable for policy makers, enabling them to engage on this vital issue with confidence and clarity." - Polly Toynbee, columnist, The Guardian
