Bean, Philip (2002) Drugs and crime. Cullompton: Willan Publishing.


Britain has a massive drug problem, and a high proportion of crimes committed are drugs-related. Attempts to talk away the problem, for example, through legalizing cannabis, do not face up to the main question, nor would they reduce its use or remove the illicit suppliers. Whilst we can choose the types of controls, we cannot choose whether or not to have a drug problem. This book addresses a range of issues associated with drugs-related crime, providing an authoritative and accessible introduction to the subject. It focuses on drug markets, violence within those markets, policing, and the use of coercive treatment through the criminal justice system. It should be useful reading for anybody with an interest in drugs and crime.
