In the US the "war on drugs" has been nearly a half-century of policy disaster. Millions in prisons, gang violence, an entire "rehab" industry. Why? Was there another way? A different model that might have preventing this disaster?

Larry Harrison's Glimpses of a Floating World is a novel, not a polemic, but it does address it's issue by setting it's story at a turning point in the UK's policy and attitude toward addiction.

What's your view? If addiction is a disease, then what's the treatment? And what's the point of putting addicts in jail?
