- "Drug Crazy : How We Got into This Mess and How We Can Get Out "
by Mike Gray
ISBN: 0679435336 $16.77 (hardback)
"Drug Crazy is a scathing indictment of America's decades-long "war on drugs," an expensive and hypocritical folly which has essentially benefited only two classes of people: professional anti-drug advocates and drug lords.
Did you know that a presidential commission determined that marijuana is neither an addicitve substance nor a "stepping stone" to harder drugs ... only to have President Nixon shelve the embarrassing final report and continue the government's policy of inflated drug addiction statistics? Did you know that several medical experts agree that "cold turkey" methods of withdrawal are essentially ineffective and recommend simply prescribing drugs to addicts ... and that communities in which this has been done report lower crime rates and reduced unemployment among addicts as a result?
Whether he's writing about the American government's strong-arm tactics toward critics of its drug policy or the reduction of countries like Colombia and Mexico to anarchic killing zones by powerful cartels, Mike Gray's analysis has an immediacy and a clarity worth noting. The passage of "medical marijuana" bills in California and Arizona (where the bill passed by a nearly 2-to-1 majority) indicates that people are getting fed up with the government's Prohibition-style tactics toward drugs. Drug Crazy just might speed that process along."

"You know, I've been a reporter a long time. In fact, I was a Drug War
reporter for a while at the Atlanta Constitution. Usually when
you're a reporter, you know what the story is when you start, and your
reporting is just a matter of getting all the facts and figures, quotes
and color to back it up. But when I started looking into this one,
I was just astounded. I would come home every night and would say to
my wife, You won't believe what the government can do now. You won't
believe how many people are in prison, what has happened to the Bill
of Rights and how much money we are spending. She's a journalist too and
she was skeptical. She'd say, Oh, you must have that wrong, go back and
find it again; and I would go back and find I'd gotten it right the
first time." (
Dan Baum in High Times 01/97)
