- Award Date:
- To support research projects on crime, incarceration and cannabis regulation led by Mark Kleiman.
Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a grant of $245,000 to the Washington Office on Latin America in December 2013 to support research projects on crime, incarceration and cannabis regulation to be led by Mark Kleiman. The grant is part of our exploration of criminal justice reform and drug policy reform in the United States, two areas we've prioritized for deeper investigation through learning grants. The grant is also meant to take advantage of what we see as a timely opportunity to study the implementation and effects of marijuana legalization in Washington and Colorado.
Good Ventures made a follow-up grant to support Mark Kleiman's work on swift-and-certain sanctions in April 2015.
