In Chapter 8, "Drugs and European governance", Eugene McLaughlin and Karim Murji map the emergence and development of a pan-European governmental project to regulate and co-ordinate the suppression of drug trafficking. The chapter also considers the role of the spread in the use and acceptance of illicit drugs, particularly among young people, as a source of discord within the EU, suggesting that moves toward state and supranational regulation have been accompanied by a significant de-regulation at the individual and personal level.
