Well the early numbers are in and it appears that since the legalization of marijuana in Colorado . . . wait for it . . . MORE KIDS ARE GETTING HIGH!
Read the news report here from Denver's CBS4: http://denver.cbslocal.com/2013/03/06/drug-testing-company-sees-spike-in-children-using-marijuana/
Of course. Who could possibly be surprised? Let's make it easier to access pot and then pretend that usage will not increase?
Here's the problem. #1--If kids are high while in school, then they are not learning anything. #2--If these kids are driving themselves to and from school, then they are driving while impaired and risk a DUI or worse, a fatality--theirs or someone else's. Have you seen the car accident stats for teens? It ain't great! Let's add pot to the mix and see what happens. #3--We already had a drug problem in our schools and it's not getting any better.
Anyone have a thought on a solution?
