Pot Use Among Colorado Teens Appears to Drop After Legalization

Marijuana use among Colorado high school students appears to be declining, despite the state’s pioneering voter-approved experiment with legalization.
According to preliminary data from the state’s biennial Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, in 2013 – the first full year the drug was legal for adults 21 and older – 20 percent of high school students admitted using pot in the preceding month and 37 percent said they had at some point in their lives.
