Pot Matters: Marijuana Use Up on Campus—But Binge Drinking Is Down
Marijuana use by college students has spiked in the last decade, a new survey shows.
Monitoring the Future (MTF), a continuing study of American youth, reports that nearly four in 10 college students—38 percent—had used marijuana in the past year. That’s up from three in 10 in 2006.
Daily and close-to-daily use—20 or more times a month—went up as well. In 2014, 5.9 percent of college students report frequent use, up from 3.5 percent in 2007.
That represents “the highest level of daily use measured in the last 34 years,” the report says.

Florida Cops Take Softer Stance on Medical Marijuana
Law enforcement officials in Florida are not nearly as opposed to medical marijuana as they were back in 2014, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
Although many police groups remain against the idea of legalizing marijuana for medical use in the Sunshine State, a shift in public opinion has allowed some of these law-fighters to calm down a little with respect to the issue.
But make no mistake about it—none of these cops are prepared to come out in support of legalization.
