really liked it

30 Years On - An interesting case.

One of my 99p buys, I found this book an interesting insight to a controversial area of government/professional policy regarding drugs. I had not heard of this specific case, but having studied government policy seeking to deal with e.g. VD cases, and now being involved in ‘the cancer world’ (as a patient), this gives insight into the power struggles and who has the right to determine what is appropriate practice. The author is clearly angry and pushing her perspective - why wouldn’t you - but seriously supported by evidence and public opinion. I do wonder what the situation is now - in this, and similar fields (eg prostitution, abortion ... and even screen time) where banning seems to be the go to practice without thought for impact on individuals.
