This video was labeled in a way that implied Jeffrey Miron supported the legalization of marijuana. However, it is obvious within the first bit (talking about needle use) that he supports the legalization of most, if not all, drugs.
It’s an interesting proposal, to say the least, but how much of it is coming from the ‘laziness’ factor? “It’s a lot of work and money involved when drugs are illegal.”
Then again, he makes some valid points towards legalization. Imagine how much revenue governments could attain through ‘sin taxes’ if all drugs were legal?
But you also have to think about the complete shift of social norms it would take to accomplish such a thing.
