MARIJUANA REFORM
 

US DRUG POLICY
  • What is US Drug Policy?, hones in on key elements of current US drug policy, points out their strengths and weaknesses, and highlights specific areas for reform.
  • The Dialogue and the Beckley Foundation's 2011 report, Rethinking US Drug Policy, calls for a serious and far-reaching national debate on the costs of current US drug policies and a search for alternative strategies.

ABOUT
