    Yes, it is a well known fact that neither Republicans nor kids of Republicans smoke pot. If you don't believe me, ask Ted Nugent

    Yes, you had your first toke early. Hooray for you. In Colorado we are seeing MORE pot in school because of the law. It isn't shocking, it just happens to be what many opponents said would happen when pot was legalized.

    Once the luster of doing something once considered edgy had it's edge taken off, people didn't give that much of a damn about it.

    Do you have statistics on this? Has drinking become boring to high schoolers?

    And Netherlands is currently rethinking its marijuana laws because of the detrimental effect it is having on there country. Turns out potheads aren't such a great element even when smoking legally. Again, who knew?!

    Not really solid proof here.

    We on the other hand actually have data that shows countries who have legal/easier-access to pot have lower rates of teenage use. What the hell do you have?
    It's more than just the one story.

    Your statistics aren't significant that show a decrease in teen useage. Moreover, the teen usage statistics are collected on teens in school, so the statistics you cite that show a decline are actually catching the signal of the higher expulsion rate.

    Expulsion of teens for marijuana is up 25% in Colorado since they began legalizing pot, 29% in total.

    But you know, don't listen to the police and the teachers and the doctors... we need to be listening to the studies created and presented by the pot lobby.

    Please refer, once again:

    Actually, regulating the drug introduces product and age controls in what is currently a black market that is much more accessible to minors and completely uncontrolled.

    So other than this one shabby article, where is the evidence that pot use is increasing among children as a result of this law?

    Umm, no

    They actually passed laws restricting the sale of marijuana in "coffee shops" to residents only but every city has refused to enforce it because the citizens and mayors refuse to go along with the right wing religious kooks who pushed for the restriction.
