''Is Access to Medical Marijuana a Disamenity?''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.2 )
Based on panel data for US states for the period 2000-2015 we find significant evidence that medical marijuana laws reduce the percentage of families with children living in a state where the law was passed. This suggests that the legalization of medical marijuana can be a source of disamenities and produce unintended effects in terms of household decisions.
