Bogart‘s book is a comprehensive road map to ending the war on drugs, presented with a welcome degree of intelligence and eloquence in a public debate more commonly dominated by emotion and polarized viewpoints.
Steve Rolles, Senior Policy Analyst, Transform
Pulling no punches, this is an unvarnished look at illegal drug use and what we should be doing about it. Its recommendations are hard-hitting and thought-provoking. They deserve a close look. Governments, take note.
Paula Mallea, author of The War on Drugs: A Failed Experiment
Bill Bogart … makes his case in a manner that is clear and compelling.… If we’re to make informed decisions after the failed war on drugs, this eye-opening appeal for a change in public policy is for every concerned citizen’s bedside table.
Fiona Reid, B.A., C.M., D.C.L., Actress
The book should be a must-read for legislators, law enforcement personnel, and law students in both Canada and the U.S. Indeed, it is so straight forward and well written that it will also be educational for interested laypersons.
Neil Vidmar, Russell M. Robinson II Professor of Law, Duke Law School
Off the Street … moves beyond political platitudes and succeeds in addressing the tough issues that are involved … [with] legalizing drugs and the challenges that lie ahead as we head down this path.
