Book cover: Legalizar as drogas: para melhor prevenir os abuso

Line Beauchesne, Full Professor at the Department of Criminology, just published Legalizar as drogas: para melhor prevenir os abusos, through Editora UFRJ.

In the book, the author uses history, politics, international relations and sociology to make an interesting contextualization on the subject and affirm that the drug war, besides being a failure, does worse: it maintains and ensures the expansion of a Black market of drugs. The price to be paid is the violation of the rights of the individual and the amplification of public health problems. On the other hand, it contributes successfully to protect markets from illicit drugs, such as tobacco and alcohol.
