Study: Teen smoking rates dropped after Washington legalized marijuana

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Researchers analyzed data from the Washington Healthy Youth Surveys of 2010-2012 and 2014-2016.

They found that marijuana use among eighth-graders fell from almost 10 percent to just over 7 percent. In 10th grade, pot use declined from nearly 20 percent to less than 18 percent. There was no change among 12th graders, the study found.

But while the findings are encouraging, there is not enough evidence to determine the long-term effects of legalization on youth marijuana use, said the researchers at the RAND Corporation and other organizations.

It's common sense. Street corner drug dealers don't check ID. Legitimate retailers who pay taxes and have the proper permits generally do. That is why as radical as it sounds on the surface I am for the legalization and regulation of all drugs.

Heroin, cocaine and meth too?

I didn't say it's a perfect solution but it is better to tax, regulate and check ID for those who purchase those things then it is to leave it to a street corner drug dealer who could care less how old their customers are and doesn't pay taxes or follow product quality regulations. People unfortunately are going to use those things whether they are illegal or legal. Might as well make sure they aren't minors and they aren't using products that are adulterated with substances more harmful than the drug it's self. Oh and we can bring in a little more tax revenue in the process. Like I said it is far from perfect but we only really have two choices on how to deal with the problem and I think we should choose the one that harms our society the least.

I don't believe an eighth grader should be smoking anything - pot or tobacco.  And there is still not enough data to suggest that any of this stuff should be encouraging news.
