In The Candy Machine, Tom Feiling travels the trade routes from Colombia via Miami, Kingston and Tijuana to London and New York. He meets Medellín hitmen, US kingpins, Brazilian traffickers and talks to soldiers and narcotics officers who fight the gangs and cartels. He 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. Cutting through the myths about the white market, this is the story of cocaine as it's never been told before.

    " Insightful book about Cocaine's journey from being a legal substance added even to coca cola to being the drug that has made ghosts out of millions! must read for anyone interested in the world of narcotics. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 8/27/2013

    " Interesting analysis and history of cocaine use and cocaine trade. By inference, the author makes a convincing argument for legalization. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Antti | 7/31/2013

    " Interesting points and details, especially the last sections about the legalization of cocaine or other drugs is a real stir up of mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chip | 2/28/2013

    " Cocaine is a hell of a drug!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/29/2012

    " Captivating stuff. It's a comprehensive economic analysis and argument in favor of legalizing and regulating cocaine and all other drugs because it would cause less harm to society than "the war on drugs" has inflicted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 2/21/2012

    " A most compelling case for moving away from the approach favored by "the war on drugs". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline Hooper | 2/4/2012

    " Great review in the NY Times Book Review this past Sunday. Supposedly a study on why we should end the failed war on drugs, which is a position I advocate too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan Green | 10/27/2011

    " A little too heavy on reports and stats etc....but useful in some ways. "
