Dr. Barnsley Brown

Michael Reznicek

A clinical psychiatrist offers a stunning indictment of the war on drugs in a new book, Blowing Smoke: Rethinking the War on Drugs without Prohibition and Rehab (Rowman & Littlefield 2012). Author Michael Reznicek, MD has worked for over 25 years in the trenches of the drug war. In this controversial new book, he argues that we are losing the war because of our devotion to the disease model of substance abuse. That model has become the driving force behind our two main strategies: prohibition laws and drug rehab. The book traces the history and science behind each to show how they paradoxically enable drug use.
