Fabricant writes with much humor and authority about a serious subject.
But Busted isn't about the futility of the Drug War. It's about staying out of jail and out on bail. It's about the bare-knuckle reality of the criminal justice system fighting a dirty war. Like all dirty wars, anything goes. Perjury, racism, public humiliation, and medieval punishment are all fair game.
Knowledge is your only defense.
I'm sure there are some who would protest the information in this book helps criminals avoid the consequences of their actions. It is supposed to. As long as the powers that be declare war on the poor schmo puffing on a spliff there will be a need for a book like this.
