Douglas Husak

Douglas is interested in all aspects of legal philosophy. More narrowly, he is interested in the connections between moral philosophy and the substantive criminal law---especially decisions about criminalization and the moral limits of the criminal sanction. This latter interest has led him to critically examine the rationale for drug prohibitions.

His book publications include: Legalize This! The Case For Decriminalizing Drugs (Verso, 2002),
Drugs and Rights (Cambridge University Press, 1992), and Philosophy of Criminal Law (Rowman & Littlefield, 1987)
