A comprehensive accounting framework for estimating the quantities and flows of drugs would go a long way toward providing that understanding. To this end, RAND has developed-and this report documents-a computer spreadsheet- based system description of the quantity and flow of marijuana from cultivation, through international transportation, to domestic distribution, and ultimately to consumption. This system description can serve as a database and an analytical tool. It consists of four interrelated spreadsheets-a database and three others that mirror the general pattern of the marijuana trade production, transportation, and U.S. distribution. The database provides primarily production related data from 1985 through 1991. This report provides user information for the model. The spreadsheets are available for either IBM DOS or Apple-based machines upon request to RAND.
