Abstract

Guest Editorial: For decades, governments have used the rhetoric of war to describe their drug control efforts and rally their populations behind hardline policies they say will help protect children. However, Nayeli Urquiza argues it’s this very terminology that encourages the abuse of children by turning them into enemies of the state.
