    Pot problems in Colorado schools increase with legalization Read more: [W:212]

    Pot problems in Colorado schools increase with legalization - The Denver Post

    "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...

    The only problem I see cited is that kids are being expelled for possession

    Just proving that the argument made by the potheads that there wouldn't be an increase in children using pot was... well, the product of a pot smokers impaired mental capacities.

    The problem is that children are using pot in higher numbers.

    I can just see those school administrators thinking "Hmmm, how can we teach those kids a lesson for smoking something that interferes with their ability to learn....I KNOW!!! Let's expel them!"

    Don't you think you are a bit premature in your prediction? Of course anytime you decriminalize something there is a rush to the void then it calms down.

    I think it was a mayor of Amsterdam that said, (paraphrasing) "We've done it... we've finally made pot boring."

    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.

    And children's brains are developing. In my opinion this is pretty bad. But this happens when a drug is first legalized. Everyone wants to abuse it. Then it tailors off. Just read up on the abuse of drugs behaviors of liberal European countries. I remember specifically the Netherlands legalized shrooms. There was a huge surge is shroom abuse, and then it tapered off.

    Yes, even in states that haven't legalized it.
    The National Institute of Drug Abuse found that marijuana use has climbed among 10th- and 12th-graders nationally, while the use of other drugs and alcohol has held steady or declined.
