Advocating for Evidence Based Marijuana Policy

Prohibition, Pot & Alcohol, Then & Now.

ASSUMPTION: 

PROHIBITION, POT & ALCOHOL, THEN & NOW.

Proponents of legalization often assert that Prohibition did not work for Alcohol and that it has not and will not work for Marijuana.  In light of some 75 years of societal & medical experience following the repeal of prohibition, along with the insights now afforded through Neuroscience it would seem reasonable to ask:

“In the event recreational use of marijuana becomes legal, what might be done to avoid the sorts of unforeseen and unintended liabilities and unwanted consequences that have accompanied the repeal of alcohol prohibition?”

And, “In what ways are these liabilities and consequences similar to or irrelevant with respect to legalization of marijuana?”
