John Gettman's Research Links
Anyone interested in the legalization of marijuana
soon discovers that drug policy reform of any kind is a complicated issue. One
sure thing, though, is that accurate information remains one of the most
persuasive and powerful tools available to reformers. The key to getting
accurate information is, whenever possible, to go to the source.
Here are fifty links to valuable background
information on marijuana and drug policy reform. While collected primarily for
students and activists these sites also provide interesting data, articles,
commentary, and analysis for the general public. These links fall into four
broad categories, providing sources for data, analysis, legal and public policy
context, and background on non-profit organization management. They contain
valuable information for the serious reformer as well as interesting
perspectives for interested observer.
