Proportionality and drug crimes

 

Each chapter of this volume provides information about the regulation of drugs in each country as well as empirical information that helps to understand the characteristics and effects of current drug policy at the regional level. The studies explore the costs that current drug laws have for both States and to important sectors of Latin American society. In particular, they show the disproportion that characterizes the studied criminal justice systems and make clear urgent need to review the current drug policy at regional level.
