Can Tobacco Control Endgame Analysis Learn Anything From the U.S. Experience With Illegal Drugs?
"All end-game proposals offer incentives for black markets in cigarette-like products.
- Black markets have the potential to create harms, such as violence, corruption and illegal incomes, in addition to increasing tobacco use and related health effects.
- The experience with marijuana and other illicit drugs suggests that these market-related harms can be very substantial.
- Though there is no systematic way of projecting how large these markets and related harms will be, it is important to acknowledge their existence and potential for reducing social well-being."
