September 2017The Effect of State Medical Marijuana Laws on Social Security Disability Insurance and Workers' Compensation Claiming
with Johanna Catherine Maclean, Lauren Hersch Nicholas: w23862
We study the effect of state medical marijuana laws (MMLs) on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Workers' Compensation (WC) claiming among working age adults. We use data on bene t claiming drawn from the 1990 to 2013 Current Population Survey coupled with a differences-in-differences design to study this question. We nd that passage of an MML increases SSDI claiming. Post-MML the propensity to claim SSDI increases by 0.31 percentage points, which translates to 11.3% relative to SSDI claiming propensity in our sample (2.7%). Point estimates for WC are imprecise.
