There has been much discussion about the benefits and drawbacks of legalization of marijuana, including a state-wide proposition in California last year. This week, our in class graded discussion will cover the issue of legalization. Here are some questions to consider as you conduct your research.
will legalization increase or decrease supply?
will demand spike as a result of legalization?
Will government profit by charging taxes? Reducing the number of criminals in prison?
Of course, there are moral questions to consider as well. Do we want society to accept the use of this drug?
When you post, please cite any research that you have conducted.
