Perspectives on Canadian Drug Policy (2003)

Volume 1

This document discusses major changes being considered by the Canadian government on the issue of drug laws and policies.

The articles presented here look at drug control policy in Canada from a number of different vantage points. They range from an analysis of the differences between contemporary drug control policy in Canadian and the U.S., to considering how the assumption that drugs cause crime has influenced drug control and corrections policy in Canada, to a cost/benefit analysis of expanding methadone maintenance programs in Canadian federal prisons to all who are medically determined to benefit from the therapy.

From the general to the specific, these articles present important analyses and viewpoints on current drug policy in Canada from individuals working in the voluntary sector.
