Maximizing Harm:
A Book about the drug war’s losers and winners

The drug policies of the United States have consistenly made drug problems worse, not better. Fatal
flaws in the policies ensure problems wil intensify. While lawmakers can access enough information
to understand this pattern, not only do they ignore it, they strive to keep such information away from the public.

Actually, the amount of information challenging the drug war is overwheilming. Anyone could read dozens of books or visit hundreds of web sites focusing on various aspects of the war. This book will give a brief introduction to the central issues in the drug wa: why it can’t work; who gets hurt; who profits; why it doesn’t
just end; and who is working for peace.
