Abstract: Although the strict policy of a declaration of war on drugs in accordance with the Prime Minister’s Office 29/2546 could speedily reduce the number of drug offenses in the country, the impact of this policy was that a lot of people died from legal murder. From a criminology viewpoint of this controversial policy, there are two main considerations. The first approach shows that this debatable policy can really solve the problems of drugs in the country even though arguably this policy seriously violates human rights. Thus, this policy in the first concept is acceptable. The samples of criminological theories supporting the first approach are the utility theory and the theory of crime control. The second approach identifies that this policy should be rejected due to the facts that it leads to severe violations of human rights and the processes of this controvertible policy do not harmonize with the rule of law. The liberal theory and the theory of due process are the examples of criminological theories that support the second approach.
