My current work is focused in the area of the assessing the consequences for crime and law enforcement practices of the legalization of marijuana in Washington state. With a two-year grant from the National Institute of Justice (US Department of Justice) I will be part of a team of 7 Washington State University researchers working in collaboration with the Washington Institute for Public Policy to document the impacts of the state's recreational marijuana law on the patterns of crime and on police practices. We will employ a combination of quantitative time-series studies and 10 intensive case studies involving the use of car-mounted and body-worn cameras, intensive interviews and focus group sessions with police in urban, rural and tribal law enforcement agencies across the state. .
