    I'm not going into the reasons but I'm looking for some source material on the history of the war on drugs in America an its subsequent impact--across the board.

    Any help you can offer would be great.

    Rolling Stone had a good article about two months ago.

    Thanks. Got that article thanks to Huggy. That should be just what the doctor orderred.
  5. JR -- There's a great book called "Storming Heaven" about the history of LSD. It contains a wealth of details about previous wars on drugs -- It's how I found out that Gordon Liddy once prosecuted Timothy Leary -- and how they are similar to the one we've been bungling with since the 1980's.
    There's another one, the title of which escapes me, about the anti-drug frenzy that erupted in the wake of Len Bias's overdose. I think Dan Baum wrote it, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks FB. My kid goes down East to play university football and lo and behold he's turning into a budding academic. He wants to major in philosophy.
