    IMO, expelling kids for possession of pot is a problem. That doesn't mean that pot should be allowed on school grounds. It just means kids should not be expelled for it.
    Then you should have stated this in your post. Otherwise people will draw their own conclusions with such little information as you provided in that post.

    I think you're the only one who had a problem understanding it. Many others did understand it.

    They will likely just hide it from you.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Instead of drinking alcohol. That's not a bad thing. Alcohol is far more dangerous.

    Like I said, the director of the Colorado department that tracks that data had no trouble reporting that 32% of expulsions were for marijuana (out of 41% that were drug related), so obviously they do track this. It also makes perfect sense that they track that data since they need to know what kinds of drugs kids are doing to appropriately counter that trend.


    That chart does not show pot use increasing.

    No, it shows that pot is by far the most abused drug among young people. So what drug do you think is on the rise among teens in a state that just legalized marijuana?


    And that chart shows a negligible rise since it was legalized (for medical use) and it's way below historical highs when it was illegal

    That is a nationwide trend, so don't expect to see Colorado's problems front and center. There is a noticeable decline in children's perception of the harmfulness of marijuana which, as the chart shows, leads to higher marijuana use.

    "GRAND JUNCTION — In two years of work as an undercover officer with a drug task force, Mike Dillon encountered plenty of drugs. But nothing has surprised him as much as what he has seen in schools lately.

    Dillon, who is now a school resource officer with the Mesa County Sheriff's Department, said he is seeing more and younger kids bringing marijuana to schools, in sometimes-surprising quantities.

    "When we have middle school kids show up with a half an ounce, that is shocking to me," Dillon said."



    Who could have foreseen this? It's a mystery...
    Wait, isn't pot legal? So what's the problem?
