Two Items on Drug Legalization

All Posts No Comments

Since I’ve been discussing the issue, two items:

* Mark Thornton passed along NORML’s estimate of the fiscal benefits to California’s government if they legalized marijuana. (Note I haven’t reviewed their study so I don’t know if it’s any good. If this were a blog devoted to cheap jokes, I would say something like, “I don’t know if they were smoking when they ran the numbers.”)

* Laurence Vance discusses the standard arguments for legalization, and says that only the ultimate argument from liberty is the solid one.
