Legalized pot hasn't led to a surge in youth use in Colorado so far. Quite the opposite.

According to the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, marijuana use among Colorado teens has gone down slightly since the state legalized recreational cannabis use in 2012.

If the trend holds, it would undermine a key argument of anti-legalization forces in other states, who often stress the potential for increased marijuana use by teens.
[...]
Colorado’s high schoolers don’t seem to have hiked up their pot consumption since it became legal. Thus, legal-weed opponents seeking data that indicates legalization hurts teens may have to look elsewhere.
[...]
“Cannabis, now that it’s legal, kind of is an old person’s drug,” he said. “It’s something that kids are seeing adults use all over the place. It just doesn’t seem as cool to kids anymore.”

Well, duh. Same thing happened in the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal. Did they expect something different?

iagree.gif All this demonizing was more about the way hemp scares industry as opposed to any concern for public safety.
Unjust laws have allowed America to build a prison industrial complex out of otherwise law abiding citizens.
Disproportionately black and Hispanic I may add. sad2.gif

That's right US. I read it's more difficult to keep stoner minds controlled.

I can understand that, when one (me) is in a chill, one reflects in a deeper more divergent/imaginative/creative way...looks at a problem/decision in all it's complexity, plus we don't give a s**t - so control is futile. chuckle.gif

Quote:During a government background check in 1988, Steve Jobs famously remarked:


“The best way I would describe the effect of the marijuana and the hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.”

If you're an asshole you're going to be one whether you smoke pot or not, but probably less so if you smoke.

Yes, it makes sense. Just like what kid wants to imitate status quo establishment assholes.

uhm as far as i know the exact opposite is true. damned.gif
the risk that kids of drunks become drunks (and/or drug addicts) later in life is significantly higher than in the general population.

i think the reason why kids no longer do mj is because it's simply no longer illegal.
young adults love to do the forbidden things. they're hardwired for risky behavior. it's an asymmetric brain development related thing which has some evolutionary advantages (cleaning the gene pool chuckle.gif et al.).
