This paper critically evaluates and compares the drug laws and policies of several European countries with some reference to those of the U.S.A as well as comments on Australia's drug laws (particularly those of NSW) and uses the comparison between them to assess the value of their different approaches to Australia's drug problem. Ultimately it questions the value of the current practices in Australia pointing to the repercussions and cost to the community and recommends that overseas success be used as a model for the development of new, sound and potentially successful laws.

From the Paper:

"The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 had as its focus the development of a drug control policy that would "restore order and security to American Neighborhoods , to dismantle drug trafficking organizations, to help people break the habit of drug use, and to prevent those who have never used illegal drugs from starting." (A Promising Future: Alcohol and Other Drug Problem Prevention Services Improvement. CSAP Prevention Monograph 10 (1992) BK191cited in A Short History of the Drug Laws). By 1992 underage drinking was included in these prevention strategies."
