    While the war on drugs is limited to a simplistic rallying cry of “no to drugs”, a diversity of approaches can open up new perspectives on the drug policies which have been tested since the beginning of the 20th Century. Living with Drugs presents the views and findings of sociologists, historians, economists, philosophers, lawyers, practitioners and activists on the use of psychotropic substances in both traditional and modern societies. It also explores the significance of this use, the consequences of the war on drugs (equivalent to a humanitarian plague), the moral dilemma facing traffickers, and working drug users.

    Part of a long investigative tradition, Living with Drugs reflects current developments in French research in the context of new regulations (such as the medical prescription of opiates), the legalization of psychotropic plants (coca, khat, peyotl, ayahuasca or kava) in some traditional areas, and finally the legalization of cannabis in North America. These legalizations put into question the boundaries between illegal substances and legal drugs such as alcohol and pharmaceuticals, and demand a renewal of human and social science research for a drug policy based on the reality of current use and risk taking, and the diversity of drug policies.
