Question 1


Do you believe in the legalization of drugs?  All drugs or certain categories?  Do you believe there would be an increase in the number of people reporting use?

 If DARE does not work, what intervention may work better?


Question 2

 The war on drugs has huge impact on not only poorer neighborhoods, but also the U.S. in general.  The spillover from Mexico impacts the US in various ways (kidnapping, deaths, etc).  What do you believe is the best strategy to combat the violence?  How would you implement your strategy?

 Should drugs be a legal or public health issue? Comparative analysis from other countries should be provided for substantive discussion.
