The Candy Machine
How Cocaine Took Over the World

Feiling, Tom
Publisher:  Penguin Books Ltd.
Year Published:  2010  
Pages:  368pp   ISBN:  978-0141034461
Cocaine is big business, and getting bigger. Governments spend millions on an unwinnable war against it, yet it's now the drug of choice in the West. How did the cocaine economy get so huge? Who keeps running it behind the scenes? Feiling traces cocaine's progress from legal ‘pick-me-up' to luxury product to global commodity, looks at legalization programmes in countries like Switzerland, and shows how America's anti-drugs crusade is actually increasing demand.
