Marijuana legalization has NOT led to more drug or alcohol abuse among young people

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sat, September, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis activists proclaim the benefits of legal marijuana, while opponents suggest it will lead to increased drug abuse and crime. Turns out both groups may be wrong.

Liberalized marijuana laws appear to have little positive or negative impact, according to a new working paper by researchers from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Harvard University and Western Carolina University. In fact, more liberal marijuana laws have had “minimal impact” on marijuana use, other substance use, alcohol consumption or crime rates, the study found.

As the basis for the law, Hill cites a 2012 California Office of Traffic Safety study that concluded marijuana was more prevalent in weekend nighttime drivers than alcohol.
