A fascinating account of the war against drugs in the UK told by someone who spent their career infiltrating the gangs and world.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The no-hoper junkies were getting the same length of prison sentences as the vicious murdering dealers.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. I was touched by the degree to which Woods became fond of a lot of the addicts he worked with (albeit that he was under cover. We would scratch the surface of a murder and almost invariably find a turf war between dealers, or a gang protecting their supply network.

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. Neil Woods spent fourteen years (1993-2007) infiltrating drug gangs as an undercover policeman, befriending and gaining the trust of some of the most violent, unpredictable criminals in Britain. It is in fact almost to me like so many jobs in the Police are reliant on the war on drugs, positions are probably engineered along with technology budgets etc, they are not the correct solution to change the war completely, then again can the change be quick like a complete reversal?Infection rates of HIV and hepatitis C are way down, as are both violet crime and petty crime rates associated with drug use. But it’s equally evident that drugs are the most profitable aspect of criminal behaviour, that without prohibition the money gangsters could make would be much reduced.
