Framing the issues
This chapter begins with a brief description of the focus of this book, namely the scientific evidence on the impact of policy responses to drug use. It then discusses why drug policy matters, the meaning of the term drug policy, and four reasons why policymakers and those involved in drug policy should invest precious time in perusal of this volume. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
