 Methamphetamine: Control of Illicit Manufacture, Distribution, Possession and Sale
Methamphetamine: Control of Illicit Manufacture, Distribution, Possession and Sale tells an American story about the efforts of government at the international, federal and state levels to control a methamphetamine epidemic which has afflicted our society for more than half a century, A detailed legislative history of the evolution of federal law to combat illicit diversion and clandestine manufacturing of methamphetamine is described. An actual federal prosecution applying federal law against multiple defendants in an alleged international methamphetamine smuggling ring is presented. Efforts at the state level to control illicit methamphetamine trafficking are examined; a legislative history of California law pertaining to the crimes and punishment of methamphetamine traffickers is described. A historical California case study on diversion of over the counter pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine decongestants in the clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine highlights the need for more stringent regulation of over the counter medications sold without a prescription.

And nowhere in all that did I read a word about rehabilitation. Curtailing supply is good; reducing demand is better.

Post Re: Methamphetamine: Control of Illicit Manufacture, Distribution, Possession and Sale
Thank you for your comments. Although there is no reference to "rehabilitation" in the brief book description, there are several sections in the book Methamphetamine: Control of Illicit Manufacture, Distribution, Possession and Sale which address the rehabilitation issue. For example in 1969 the Senate Committee on Juvenile Delinquency introduced S.1895 which proposed to abolish mandatory minimum penalties for most drug offenses and authorized federal courts to commit drug addicts to rehabilitation rather than prosecuting them for a criminal charge (p. 19-22). And in fact Title I of the federal Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-513) establishes rehabilitation programs relating to drug abuse.

The Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 ((P.L. 109-177) provided a Drug Court (p. 177) program which has been proven to be successful in the treatment of methamphetamine users as an alternative to the "get tougher" mandatory minimum sentencing approach. The program requires an 18 month treatment program in which the graduate must be drug free for 180 days, have a stable living arrangement, and be employed or enrolled in a vocational or academic program. 80% (20% recidivism) of the graduates are not rearrested for drugs, and 74% of the graduates have no subsequent arrests.

Section 414 of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (model for state laws) permits a judge to place a first offender on probation in lieu of sentencing the offender to prison (p. 264). The conditional discharge is applicable only to cases involving simple possession of controlled substances, is available only once with respect to any person, and is discretionary with the judge. The section also provides for maintenance of confidentiality of the defendant's record upon his/her fulfilling all the terms and conditions of probation (ie completion of treatment and rehabilitation) so as to preclude any permanent criminal record from attaching to and following the defendant.
