Colorado: Pot Use Doubled Among Youth Since Legalization

Colour me shocked.

Question: The RMHIDTA report released in September, “the legalization of marijuana in Colorado: the impact,” found marijuana use has essentially doubled among adults and youths, 12 to 17, since Colorado legalized the recreational use and sale of the drug. Did this surprise you?
Answer: “If you legalize something and make it readily available, more people are going to use it. And any time you have an increased use of any intoxicant, there is going to be an impact on society. That’s only logical.”

Legalize pot! What could go wrong? /sarcasm
