Summary  
Adopt policies that learn. Policymakers should try out ideas, measure their outcomes and make mid-course corrections accordingly. One extreme version would be to incorporate a ‘sunset’ clause into the initial regulation, requiring a legislative or popular re-authorisation of legal availability after a trial period. 

Beware commercialisation. The commercial interest in promoting heavy use will prove difficult to control through taxes and regulations. Not-for-profit-only production and sale on the one hand, and state monopoly on the other, are options to consider before rushing headlong into a replication for cannabis of something resembling the existing alcohol industry. 

Consider incremental approaches. Not all initial policies are equally easy to change. In particular, the greater the financial (and therefore political) power of a commercial, for-profit cannabis industry, the harder it will be to make policy adjustments that might reduce the revenues of that industry. Thus, pioneering jurisdictions may want to consider incremental approaches that begin – and might end – with non-profit regimes. 

Let the experiments run. The places that legalise cannabis first will provide – at some risk to their own populations – an external benefit to the rest of the world in the form of knowledge, however the experiments turn out. Federal authorities in the United States and other places where states or provinces try to innovate and the guardians of the international treaty regimes would be well advised to keep their hands off as long as the pioneering jurisdictions take adequate measures to prevent ‘exports’.

Prevent price decreases. Any consumer concerned about cannabis prices is probably using too much. 

Plan for prevention and treatment. Abuse will almost certainly go up under legal availability, but prevention and treatment efforts can help to limit the size of that increase and the suffering it creates. 

Consider user-set quotas and other ‘nudge’ options. If substance abuse is a ‘disorder of choice,’ then managing the choice architecture might be one mechanism for preventing and managing that disorder. (London School of Economics - LSE Ideas, 2014)
