Marijuana use up in states where it's legal December 31 2014, 0 Comments
Not a surprising result. Fortunately, the public attitude towards marijuana has shifted so significantly that most people don't view this as a bad thing (much less a crisis.) The longer term questions to look out for are if marijuana-related fatalities will go up (they won't) or if alcohol-related fatalities will go down (so far, they are in Colorado.)
Shifting consumption from a really harmful thing (alcohol) to a much more innocuous thing (pot) is not surprisingly... a good thing.
