Klappentext

In the Caribbean islands, ganja, crack cocaine and the policy responses to them have triggered a social disaster. The islands, under US pressure, have adopted a region-wide policy of criminalization. Specialized drug courts have been created and traditional cultural practices around ganja consumption have been criminalized with serious human and social consequences. This is the first book to examine the experiences of Caribbean countries since they adopted this coordinated approach to the drugs problem. It throws fascinating light on the difficulties facing drug abuse and rehabilitation centers, and explores "Harm Reduction," a fundamentally alternative approach to the drugs problem. There are valuable practical and policy lessons to be learned for other countries, including those with large Caribbean populations such as the US and UK.



Zusammenfassung
If the Caribbean poses a significant drugs problem for the UK and US, in the islands themselves ganja, crack cocaine and the policy responses to them have triggered a veritable social disaster. This book brings together new research, insightful policy analysis and practical experience of on-the-ground interventions.
