Course Description

The American experience with illicit drugs is complex. On the one hand, we have more access to psychoactive drugs than any other society. On the other hand, we control and punish drug use more than any other society. This results in a debate as to the best approach to deal with drug use and distribution: punishment, interdiction, prevention, and or rehabilitation. This course is designed to analyze this complex situation from multiple angles with specific attention to the ways that our culture understands drug, drug use, and drug policy as a social/criminal justice problem
