In this meticulously researched, fiercely argued book, the columnist Peter Hitchens responds to the legion of politicians, commentators and cultural figures who repeatedly declare that the ‘war on drugs’ has failed. Hitchens makes the case that the ‘war’ was never really fought, and that since the adoption of the Wootton Report in 1971, which classified cannabis as a ‘soft’ drug, successive governments have pursued a policy of covert legalization, effectively disarming the police in their efforts to counter this threat.
