Legalization has not caused an increase in teen use of cannabis


Not an overwhelming surprise to me personally. The reality is that making something less taboo and more normal will not result in people rushing to have it.

Also, as a former educator, I can’t help but be proud of this line:


I can think of a couple possible explanations:

  1. Legalization takes some of the “forbidden fruit” aspect away, so it’s less popular with teenagers, as you mentioned @Hunter
  2. Legal dispensaries are much more diligent about checking to make sure people are 21 than your average illegal dealer.

Yeah, I gotta agree @nicholas. There’s a lot for a dispensary to lose if it sells to underage people, unlike a drug dealer.
