Study: Legalization of marijuana has not led to increased use among young adults

SEPTEMBER 18, 2014, BY ASHLEY MICHELS

DENVER — A study about marijuana suggests new laws in Colorado have not encouraged teens to try the drug.

For parents who use marijuana, 75 percent of their children say they have also tried the drug. And teens in Colorado don’t use it any more than they do in the rest of the country.

That’s important because a lot of people were worried that Amendment 64 would encourage more children to try marijuana. But according to this survey, that’s not the case.
