Research Topics

 

All my books and articles are listed in Publications


People often ask me what to read on a particular subject. Here are some suggestions.

 

Drugs

The drug problem is one of the most serious issues facing our society today. The problem is prohibition and the solution is control and regulation - in other words full legalisation with appropriate controls. I am delighted to be a patron of Transform, the campaign for the legalisation of drugs, and admit to being an Outlaw.

Here are some of the things I have broadcast or written on drugs.
