A wonderful book ... I hope everyone will read it, Sam Harris

An absolutely stunning book. It will blow your mind, and blow you away, Elton John

Wonderful. I couldn't put it down, Noam Chomsky

This book is as intoxicatingly thrilling as crack, without destroying your teeth -- Russell Brand

This book is, forgive the obvious phrase, screamingly addictive. The story it tells, jaw-droppingly horrific, hilarious and incredible, is one everyone should know: that is all true boggles the mind fascinated and infuriates by equal measure. Johann Hari, in brilliant prose, exposes one of the greatest and most harmful scandals of the past hundred years, Stephen Fry

Breath-taking . A powerful contribution to an urgent debate, John Harris, Guardian

A testament to Hari's skill as a writer, New York Times

Superb journalism and thrilling story-telling, Naomi Klein

Gripping, Financial Times

One of the world's most important and most enlightening thinkers and social critics, Glenn Greenwald, winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Book Description

This shocking account of the War on Drugs and the alternatives to it is 'superb journalism and thrilling story-telling' - Naomi Klein, author of No Logo
