      In The War We Never Fought, Hitchens uncovers the secret history of the government's true attitude and the increasing recruitment of the police and courts to covert decriminalization initiatives and contrasts it with the rhetoric. Whatever and whoever is to blame for the undoubted mess of Britain's drug policy, it is not prohibition or a war on. As the title of this book says, the war on drugs that we have never fought. Another sick event to raise out of the cultural revolution of the s is the wide use of brain and body altering drugs and in my view why would you want to take the brain and body that you have been given from birth and use it as a experimental poison factory/5(32).
