The aim of the paper is to study the drug market regulations from the institutional economics perspective and to develop recommendations for policymakers. Authors’ idea is that the government, which considers imposing regulations on drug market, ought to define aspects of this market, which require institutions and then, develop proper institutions’ efficiency or market’s efficiency criteria. What is more, it should analyse the outcomes achieved by other countries in the field of drug policy. Therefore, the article consists of three parts: market failures review regarding drug market characteristics, the efficiency of law measures (special reference to Pareto, Kaldor-Hicks or Posner criteria) and Portuguese drug policy effects analysis.

Celem artykułu jest analiza regulacji rynku narkotyków z perspektywy ekonomii instytucjonalnej oraz opracowanie zaleceń dla decydentów politycznych. Zdaniem autorów rząd, który rozważa nałożenie regulacji na rynek narkotykowy, musi określić aspekty tego rynku, które wymagają instytucji, oraz kryteria badania efektywności tych instytucji. Ponadto, powinien przeanalizować rezultaty osiągnięte przez inne kraje w zakresie polityki narkotykowej. Dlatego też artykuł złożony jest z trzech części: przeglądu niedoskonałości, które mogą wystąpić na rynku narkotyków, efektywności przepisów prawa (ze specjalnym uwzględnieniem kryteriów Pareta, Kaldora-Hicksa oraz Posnera) oraz z analizy efektów portugalskiej polityki narkotykowej. Słowa kluczowe: ekonomia regulacji; efektywność prawa; polityka narkotykowa
