The new issue of the Journal of Drug Policy Analysis is now up:
* Victoria A. Greenfield, Letizia Paoli, and Peter H. Reuter on why the Senlis proposal to let Afghan farmers grow poppies for pharmaceutical market won’t dent drug dealing, improve farmers’ incomes, or relieve pain
* Thomas F. Kresina, Alain Litwin, Ira Marion, Robert Lubran, and H. Westley Clark on the regulation of opiate maintenance;
* Jonathan P. Caulkins and Ryan Menefee on how risk perception influences drug policies.

Those all sound like interesting topics that I'd enjoy reading a few paragraphs about on a blog, but probably won't read an article in an academic journal. So I hope you'll consider blogging about them at some point.
Try the journal. These are all well-written essays, not collections of correlation coefficients, and they're not much longer than a long RBC post.
