Guest Speaker Peter Reuter - "Why Criminologists Should Care About Drug Policy"

Though criminologists have contributed to understanding of the relationship between drug use and crime, they have not been prominent in the broader research agenda on drug policy in the United States. This presentation provides an overview of recent drug policy research, giving particular emphasis to what has been learned about drug markets and the effectiveness of control efforts. The introduction of fentanyl into the drug supply has caused a public health crisis in the U.S. but not had any measurable effect on crime. Nonetheless I will argue that criminologists may be able to contribute to mitigating the opioid crisis by paying attention to the supply side that public health researchers and activists so conspicuously neglect.
