Drug Policy Practicum

W. Ball
3 333 Tuesdays & Thursdays 10:30 am-11:45 am

This class is by permission only.  If you are interested in adding this class, please email Professor Ball to set up a meeting.  The professor is a member of the ACLU Blue Ribbon Panel on Marijuana Law and Policy chaired by Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom.   The ACLU—and Criminal Justice and Drug Policy Director Allen Hopper—formed the Panel with the Lt. Governor to advise and assist its policy and legal research concerning California’s marijuana laws and the potential costs and benefits of legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults. The ACLU believes that in 2016 there is a very good chance there will be an initiative on the ballot to tax and regulate marijuana.   This class will serve as a kind of think tank for the Panel, writing a series of policy papers on all the related issues, among them taxation rates/structures, safety/purity regulations, intellectual property/branding issues, real estate/zoning, changes to medical marijuana regulations—basically anything and everything that is likely to be an issue.  [The issues of youth addiction will be handled separately, by Lt. Gov. Newsom’s staff.]  The idea behind the class—and the Panel—is to make sure that, should California decide to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, it does so in a way that minimizes any potential damage to public safety.  Students in the class will have the opportunity to affect policy and to have their work read and circulated by policymakers.  The Panel is not expected to endorse or support legalization generally nor any specific ballot initiative that goes forward, nor are Panel members asked to agree with or endorse any ACLU conclusions or recommendations.  The same is true of the class.   Enrollment will be limited, and students who are interested should be prepared to work hard.  In addition to reading and discussing policy, I will expect students to contribute to a group blog about marijuana legalization.
