Excerpt: No newsletter, indeed no book, can do full justice to the drug abuse controversy. As a result, we have contented ourselves here with providing reviews of some books and positions to help orient FAS readers. Broadly speaking, most of the population sees the problem as the drugs themselves, But there is another smaller but growing segment that sees the War on Drugs as the problem. (See page 3 for several schools of thought on alternative approaches. ) These people focus on abuses in the use of civil forfeiture to seize -property without convictions; the widespread use of mandatory minimum sentences (and very high minimums) that permit no judicial discretion even in cases that cry out for it; the pressures on constitutional protections that arise from trying to stamp out a consensual, and largely victimless, crime- the crime induced by prohibition, and so on.
