The nation’s first recreational marijuana shop opened nearly three years ago in Colorado. Since then, a growing body of research has shown that the availability of recreational marijuana – in Colorado and elsewhere – is having little to no effect on teens’ propensity to smoke weed.

And it’s also backed up by other federal surveys of drug use in the states where marijuana is legal.

Boy did a lot of people suddenly start smoking marijuana. Washingtonians and visitors have spent almost a quarter-billion dollars on retail weed since legalization. It’s a lot of money. Enough to cover a week’s worth of Forest Service firefighting costs this August. Enough to pay Marshawn Lynch for almost 21 years of Beast Mode at his current compensation.
Thirty years ago, a college kid in Kentucky was caught growing marijuana plants in his closet. That turned him into a convicted felon, and though he’s been on the right side of the law ever since, he still can’t vote. On any job application, he must check the box next to “Have you ever been convicted of a felony?” All this misery for growing a plant whose leaves the past three presidents admit having smoked.
