The authors discuss the role of law enforcement officers in abused substance cases, double standards in enforcing substance abuse laws, driving under the influence of drugs as opposed to alcohol, and legal and prosecution perspectives regarding these drug cases. This book contains much valuable information and is a must for anyone who regularly deals with prosecuting or defending substance abuse cases.

As drug use is an international problem, the authors also present case studies of Turkey and Australia’s laws pertaining to abused substances and driving, and how they were developed. This information is particularly valuable to those involved in the creation of substance abuse legislation, here in the US and around the world.

  • The Science of Drug Influence
