It argues that drug policy has, since at least the early 1970s, been caught in the crossfire of a so-called {\textquoteleft}culture war{\textquoteright} where conservative republicans have been able to define and re-deploy controversial fears of intoxication that have been contested for over 200 years. The result is that even allegedly {\textquoteleft}liberal{\textquoteright} politicians who seemed to favour harm-reduction have had to back off of this approach.
