Cannabis Use Declines For Teens In States Legalized According To Studies

[addiction-3792495_1280-1024x682]By Aaron Kesel

Use of cannabis has dropped by teenagers in Washington since legalization in 2012, according to a study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Seattle Times reported.

The study, comprised of data from 2014-2016, showed a decrease in marijuana usage by teens in both middle and high school.  According to the study, use amongst 8th graders dropped from 9.8 to 7.3 percent over that period, while use amongst 10th graders fell from 19.8 to 17.8 percent. Meanwhile, use by seniors remained flat at just over one in four students, 26.7 percent, during those time periods.

As a reminder for the reader, the legal age to consume marijuana in Washington is 21.

There is often much concern among politicians and medical professionals when cannabis is legalized that use among kids would skyrocket. So it’s refreshing to see researchers are finding quite the opposite.

It is time to legalize it on the federal level and then let the states decide whether to legalize it and for what purposes. The resources we waste fighting potheads whos only real crime is to attack a bag of Doritos is staggering. We have very many really bad and violent criminals running around and the police and courts need to use their resources to get them off the streets instead of clogging our courts and wasting our LEO's time going after weed. ..

Pot of gold? Marijuana now legal in California
[3A34E43100000578-3918048-image-m-13_1478706233307] 

(SFGATE) — Before sunrise on New Year’s Day, cashiers welcomed the first legal sales of recreational marijuana in California, launching a new industry expected to bring in billions of dollars while accepting new regulations and taxes.

The day has been long anticipated by cannabis advocates who pushed for voters to pass Proposition 64 in November 2016, largely decriminalizing marijuana and allowing — starting Monday — for the commercial sale of products to adults 21 or older.
