Beschreibung:

Operation Intercept: The Multiple Consequences of Public Policy analyzes the taken-for-granted reality of the search-and-destroy anti-marihuana legislation. This book focuses on the Operation Intercept, a policy that aims to control the importation of illegal drugs, marihuana in particular, across the United States-Mexican border. Chapter 1 discusses the objectives of Operation Intercept and the factors and assumptions underlying this policy. Chapter 2 examines the availability of marihuana during the Operation Intercept period and the unanticipated consequences of such policy decision. Chapter 3 presents data that confirms marihuana shortage in New York City during the summer and early fall of 1969. Lastly, Chapter 4 provides an appraisal of anti-drug policies in the past and an examination of the general drug abuse problem in the United States. Sociologists who are interested in deviant behavior and social problems will find this book invaluable.
