Misuse of Drugs provides detailed guidance on all aspects of the law relating to drug misuse in New Zealand.

This specialised work has established itself as a core reference on the laws of drug misuse and trafficking since its first publication in 1988. Offering a balance of law and procedure, it is used by all sectors of the criminal legal system.

An impartial approach means that both defence lawyers and prosecutors may draw upon its clear guidance.

Misuse of Drugs covers all offences as well as evidence, sentencing and forfeiture. Links are provided to Adams on Criminal Law and Criminal Reports of New Zealand to facilitate research. The text follows a logical progression, starting with possession, moving through manufacturing or cultivation and supply and other offences to court proceedings and sentencing.
