David Nutt's Blog: Evidence Not Exaggeration [June 29, 2012]











'Drugs Without the Hot Air' argues the case for an evidence-based approach, challenging elements of drug policy and myths on the relative harms of legal and illegal drugs. Addressing family, environmental and economic factors along with the danger of injury and death associated with different drugs, the book demonstrates Nutt's framework for quantifying their harms. In order to minimise the harms of drugs [environmental, medical, social, economic], policies and public perceptions must be more informed by the evidence, and less determined by ideology. As well as this the book equips readers with essential knowledge of how drugs affect the mind and body and how addiction happens, as well as fascinating insight into the history of drug policy and drug use.
