Review of Is Legalizing Drugs an Option?

Professor Mcoy's analysis of the war on drugs stands out as voice of honesty and sensible thinking in a sea of rhetoric. As our prison populations continue to rise and it becomes more and more apparent that the detriments of our current drug policy far outweigh any benefits, I welcome Mcoy's words. If, like the professor points out, we look at policy changes already taking place in California it is obvious that a change in our attitudes toward drug policy can and will help reduce the demand for drugs as well as alleviate the rising numbers of citizens being incarcerated each year in United States prisons.
