Assumptions and Consequences of the War on Drugs: An Economic Analysis
Using recent evidence from the state of Florida, the outcomes of the "War on Drugs" are analyzed by critically evaluating the assumptions that underlie the policy. It would appear that many of the assumptions may not be valid, thereby in part explaining the apparent failure of the drug law enforcement strategy to attain the stated objectives. Alternative strategies are briefly considered. Copyright 1992 by The Policy Studies Organization.
