Marijuana, Sex and Amsterdam

Jeffrey A. Miron –
September 6, 2013

In an article that also appeared in Huffington Post on September 6, 2013, Jeffrey Miron writes in this commentary that he has researched the economics of drug legalization versus drug prohibition. Based on this work and much other evidence, I have come to regard legalization as a policy no-brainer. Virtually all the effects would be positive, with minimal risks of significant negatives.
