Viewpoints: Should marijuana be legalized?


Baker Institute fellows and guest writers considered whether the United States should legalize marijuana in a recent series of blogs that attracted thousands of readers and hundreds of comments. The series was the second installment of Viewpoints, a Baker Institute blog feature that offers an array of views on a single issue.

Contributors to the marijuana series included William Martin, director of the Baker Institute Drug Policy Program; Baker Institute nonresident drug fellow Gary Hale, a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent; and guest writer Kevin Sabet, a former senior drug policy adviser in the Obama administration.
