Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs

by Johann Hari - £9.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408857823 | ISBN 10: 1408857820

Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the war on drugs is not what we see on our TV screens.
 
In Chasing the Scream, Johann Hari shares his discoveries through the riveting true stories he uncovered on a 30,000-mile journey from the founder of the war on drugs who stalked and killed Billie Holiday, to a transgender crack dealer in Brooklyn, to the only country that has ever decriminalised all drugs, with remarkable results.
 
You will never look at addiction or our society in the same way again.
