Here's me on drugs - over at today's Sunday Times.
And here are some of the things I have been reading on the subject:
Why it is still politically expedient to continue the criminalisation of drugs.
A new Cato Institute report on lessons from Portugal's de-criminalisation of drugs.
Will Wilkinson on the 5,000 violent deaths in Mexico in just the past year from the war on drugs.
The Opium Economy by Jeremy Berkoff on the global economic cost of the war.
Jennifer Michael Hecht's The Happiness Myth, especially its chapters on the history of drug usage and criminalisation in (mainly) English speaking countries over the past two centuries.
Some recent research by my own company on drug consumption in Ireland.
