Analyzing Alternative Laws and Policies for Psychoactive Drugs Seminar

Law School

Recommended for route(s):

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] Criminal Law: General

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Public Policy : This course should be useful for students interested in criminal law policy as well as health law policy issues. Students will prepare a report and client briefing to address legal questions arising from the recent legalization of marijuana in certain states. The focus of the course includes state law conflict with federal law and international treaty obligations, as well as a consideration of the form a legal market in these drugs should take.

General course Description:

Two states have already legalized marijuana (WA and CO) and several more may do so in the next few years. These state initiatives pose unresolved legal questions (because of the clash with federal law and international treaty obligations), and major undecided design issues about what form a legal market should take. We will examine the topic using many different lenses, including moral philosophy, welfare economics, neuroscience and medicine, criminal justice, and political analysis. We will draw on many analytic methods including epidemiology, econometrics, quasi-experimentation, simulation modeling, case studies, and reasoning by analogy (tobacco, alcohol, prostitution, gambling). Among the policy levers we will consider are education and moral suasion, criminal justice, traditional risk regulation and street-level harm reduction, and taxation. Special Instructions: Students will have the option to combine this seminar with a practicum for two additional units with instructor consent. Students who take the practicum component will work as a team to prepare a written report and briefing for an actual policy client (to be determined). Only students enrolled in the Analyzing Alternative Laws and Policies for Psychoactive Drugs seminar may enroll in the Analyzing Alternative Laws and Policies for Psychoactive Drugs practicum component. Elements used in grading: Attendance, Written Assignments, Final Exam.
