This book provides an empirical assessment of the content, politics, implementation, and outcomes of U.S. federal and state policies toward illicit drugs and alcohol. The author demonstrates the value of a multi-method approach to public policy analysis, arguing that descriptive historical studies, quantitative historical studies, and cross-sectional quantitative studies are essentially compatible. Several findings are offered: drug law enforcement is associated with greater levels of violence and disproportionally falls on minorities; drug policies are adopted for political reasons; state drug law enforcement levels reflect federal efforts; and control laws have little impact on illicit drug prices. Professor Meier concludes that current federal drug policies are irrational.
