Kosali Simon, PhD Herman B Wells Endowed Professor I Associate Vice Provost for Health Sciences, Indiana University Bloomington “Can Policy Affect Initiation of Addictive Substance Use? Evidence from Opioid Prescribing" Abstract: Drug control policy can have unintended consequences by pushing existing users to alternative, possibly more dangerous substances. Policies that target only new users may therefore be especially promising.

We also provide the first evidence on the impact of must-access…
