Substance Use and Addiction Research: Methodology, Mechanisms, and Therapeutics
Alan David Kaye; Elyse M. Cornett
Comparative drug policy analysis (CPA) can be defined as studying the development, characteristics, implementation, or effects of a drug or alcohol policy across more than one jurisdiction. The word “policy” in CPA is meant to resemble an observable event in the form of a law, regulation rule, or standard operating procedure. CPA is not a unified field, and it is a diverse set of activities that spans multiple disciplines. CPA has been increasingly utilized to drive public health policy. There is tremendous debate surrounding CPA. Trends portray a global movement away from prohibition and a harm reduction approach to drug policy.
