Debating Marijuana Legalization Frameworks

Alejandro Hope, whom I rely on for consistently intelligent and nuanced drug and crime policy analysis, has conducted a series of interviews about marijuana legalization at El Daily (An English language site focused on Mexico). So this is a great chance to wonk out with four perspectives on legalization:

Keith Humphreys, on not making it a cash cow

Beau Kilmer, on the many options for regulation

Mark Kleiman, on temperate marijuana legalization

and Bryce Pardo on the balancing act involved
