Chasing the Scream by Johann Hari review – taking on the war on drugs | Books | The Guardian:
"Around halfway through Johann Hari’s new book, he recalls visiting a conference in Sweden organised by the World Federation Against Drugs – as its own blurb puts it, “a multilateral community of non-governmental organisations and individuals” which rather optimistically claims to “work for a drug-free world”. The WFAD’s position on the so-called “war on drugs” is the opposite of Hari’s: he favours liberalisation and decriminalisation, the Federation support prohibition. In that sense, his visit to Stockholm is a behind-enemy-lines exercise that you would have thought would produce no end of anecdotes."
