Arizona teens have been smoking less weed since medical pot law passed1/4/2013
So far, critics of Arizona’s medical marijuana law who thought it would cause “reefer madness” among teens have seen their arguments go up in smoke. There is no weedemic among the Copper State’s youth. In fact, the figures are sobering: The number of pot-smoking teens has actually decreased slightly since the law was passed in 2010. A new study found that the percentage of teens who reported smoking weed once in their lives declined in 2012, as did the number who reported toking up in the past 30 days. The biggest change appears to be among younger teens: 10th and 12th graders reported a slight increase, but a large decline among eighth graders brought down the overall average. [Source]
