Back cover blurb:

'Some laws are passed to express public disapproval, not to be enforced' - Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitian Police.


Ignorance, prejudice and even envy have led to the explosive animus against a new and widespread activity - the smoking of the drug cannabis. The Wooton Commission was set up to discover its implications, only to be condemmned by politicians and newspapers long before its findings were published. The introduction of tobacco, tea and now cannabis took western society quite by suprise. On this occasion it has instituted a witch - hunt.


Michael Schofield is a social psychologist who serves on the official committee on drug dependence. In this clear and considered account he examines the escalation theory (from cannabis to harder drugs), cannabis and crime, the law and police discretion, and the case for and against the legalization of "pot".
