The scary part is the two parallel worlds that he portrays and how on going to a town he managed to pick out the people to contact and within a couple of introductions he was face to face with some of the most dangerous people at loose in the country. He very much walked the walk, some of the things he experienced most people couldnt even imagine in theyre worst nightmares and he lived to tell the tale. Neil Woods moved from constabulary to constabulary going undercover to familiarise himself with the local druggies and infiltrate the dealers while keeping his secret life a secret! Very gripping account, and very persuasive on its central argument, although I have to admit that he was preaching to the converted with me. Throughout his deployments in towns and cities across the UK he dealt with psychopaths and villains who preyed on addicts, torturing, maiming and killing those who crossed them.

During his career he witnessed increased brutality, violence meted out to addicts who spoke out, or even who introduced a stranger to their dealer. Not only was undercover policing counterproductive in the long term, it was also an arms race with the gangs becoming ever more violent and ruthless to avoid being caught. Neil is the chairman of LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition), a pro-legalisation advocacy group formed exclusively of ex-law enforcement officials, and he also starred on Channel 4’s Drugs Live .This is the story of how a thoughtful, idealistic character learned to use his empathetic nature to master some of the roughest, most dangerous work in law enforcement.

In addition, Switzerland uses Heroin Assisted Therapy - actually prescribing heroin to addicts - alongside various methadone programmes. In the year 2000, Portugal had both the highest drug addiction rate and highest rates of drug deaths in Europe.Admittedly, this is not my usual Saturday night read, but this was recommended by a colleague and I found I really enjoyed it. When Neil left the police and pursued a life of changing the course of the fight against drugs, I was riveted and it is pure proven logic. It will be tempting for those in favour of prohibition to paint Neil Woods as a limp-wristed, bleeding-heart liberal. His experience and life as an undercover police officer really is gripping and chilling at the same time. Then after some time, they ask the small street addicts to introduce them to their dealers - the people with the real power, who are making money from drugs.
