Abstract:

The drug problem has reached epidemic levels in this country, with Americans spending approximately $50 billion a year to buy them. It is the most serious internal crisis we've faced since the Civil War. Until now, no book or document in America has set forth a detailed, step-by-step plan for solving the nation's drug problem. The Phoenix Solution: Getting Serious About Winning America's Drug War does just that. It is a controversial, breakthrough book.

Written by Vincent Bugliosi, the nation's foremost prosecutor, The Phoenix Solution offers not only a startling analysis of current drug policy but an actual blueprint for bringing the crisis to an end. Bugliosi takes a hard look at the common assumptions about drugs and drug control that are the basis of our national policy. In the process, he reveals some astonishing facts about the inept techniques that have been used to fight the war on drugs.

Finally, he gets to the heart of this book: the revolutionary programs that we, as a nation, must adopt if we are to defeat this epidemic, which has already claimed millions of lives. Bugliosi outlines two separate, original approaches to drug control that promise to bring us victory within a year.
