The high cost of (not) stopping people getting high
Prohibition of marijuana, just like prohibition of alcohol before it, has been a costly failure. Treasury’s informal estimate of the cost is over $300 million per year and the benefits to date, in terms of reduction in usage, are modest.

San Bernardino's Corrupt and Illegal Cannabis Licensing Program
This project addresses facts that appear to show both intentional City corruption and potential City incompetence. Specifically, the City of San Bernardino issued cannabis licenses to a number of businesses who it is illegal to issue permits to. These businesses were shown to be too close to “sensitive uses” under the Municipal Code and violated the General Plan. Despite the fact that the City Council was advised of this by City staff, the City Attorney, some of the applicants who did not receive licenses, and the general public, the City Council went forward with awarding those permits. This appears to have been done knowingly by at least some within the City. The evidence suggests that there was a “pay for play” scheme involving the marijuana permitees, the City Manager (Defendant Andrea Miller) and the former Mayor (Carey Davis). This is because the City Manager (Defendant Andrea Miller) set up meetings between the former Mayor (Carey Davis)’s campaign funder, Scott Beard, and the marijuana groups that should have been disqualified under the Municipal Code and State Law. The marijuana groups texted to confirm campaign contributions to the former Mayor’s campaign, both on and off the books. These same businesses received marijuana permits from the City Council despite being disqualified. This was accomplished through a combination of intentional acts by some within the City, and incompetence through others at the City directed by those taking intentional acts.
