Examining impact of marijuana legalization and/or decriminalization on law enforcement

As highlights in many prior posts, students in my marijuana law school seminarare in the midst of assembling readings and leading discussions concerning the research topic(s) that are the focal point for class project(s). This week, among the interesting topics on the agenda, is impact of marijuana prohibition and of marijuana reform on law enforcement activities, and here are links to the student-assembled readings on this topic:

"Police chief: Legalize marijuana, use tax revenue to fund drug treatment"

"Concerns in Criminal Justice System as New York City Eases Marijuana Policy."

"After 5 Months of Sales, Colorado Sees the Downside of a Legal High"

CJCJ Research report, "Reforming marijuana laws: Which approach best reduces the harms of criminalization?"
