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.
