Getting High: The Globalization of Drug Crime combines academic research and the real-world experiences of experts in drug-trafficking trends to explore the impact of organized criminal groups and transnational trafficking on the global drug problem. The book begins with an in-depth study of the pharmacological and abuse patterns of various drugs.

Readers then learn how the illicit global drug market functions as they examine and analyze the workings of domestic and foreign trafficking organizations.

They explore the movement of illegal drugs from source countries to destination nations.

They become familiar with global drug control policies and recent strides in rehabilitation efforts.

Lastly, they explore radical Islam and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as contributing factors to the global heroin trade. Getting High takes readers far beyond the familiar topic of drugs in society.

The text is a fascinating journey into the international drug market, fueled by an insatiable desire and capitalized on by organized crime.

Engaging and informative, it is an excellent choice for courses in drugs and crime, sociology, criminal justice, and addiction studies.
