Trump’s Drug Czar Flip-Flop: Funding for Border Wall Before Opiate Treatment

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Proving America’s would-be strongman can be as pliant as a microwaved bagel when subjected to the slightest bit of pressure, the Trump administration completed a near-perfect 360-degree turn on drug policy on Tuesday.  

But even Donald Trump’s flip-flops are ghastly disasters.

While abandoning an almost universally-derided plan that would have exacerbated the opiate overdose crisis, the White House instead found a way to make America even worse.  

Let’s review.

Earlier this month, shortly after Donald Trump’s rumored favorite for the position of White House “drug czar” dropped out of contention, it appeared the president was ready to eliminate the job entirely.

Pot Legalization Has Little Effect on Neighboring States

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

Aside from increases in adult marijuana possession arrests in border counties, a new working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research has found that state marijuana legalization has little effect on neighboring states.

In the paper, The Cross-Border Spillover Effects of Recreational Marijuana Legalization, professors Zhuang Hao and Benjamin Cowan from the School of Economic Sciences at Washington State University found that legalization “causes a sharp increase in marijuana possession arrests of border counties relative to non-border counties.”

“If a county shares a physical border with [a legalized] state,” the authors note, “it experiences an increase in marijuana possession arrests of roughly 30 percent.”

However, the study found that the increased arrests are almost entirely among adults.
