Legalizing Medical Cannabis Has Not Led to Rise in Use

According to new research that surprised its authors. legalizing the medical use of cannabis has not led to a surge in the numbers of adolescents using it in the USA. The findings should encourage those hoping for relaxation of the law elsewhere.
Since 1996, 23 US states and the District of Columbia have approved the medicinal use of cannabis. In the states of Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon and DC, recreational use is also legal.
