This report is the best evidence for supporting the legalization of marijuana. Marijuana has just been legalized for recreational use in Colorado and Washington state. That’s not to say that marijuana should be sold to kids under the age of 21, but legalization will 1) minimize the demand for dangerous substitutes, and 2) just like alcohol, provide state control of the sale, and quality of marijuana.
As reported in USA TODAY, “Federal report shows impact of fake marijuana on public health” synthetic drugs that mimic a marijuana high sent 11,406 people, mostly teenagers and young adults, to the emergency room in 2010, according to the federal governments Drug and Abuse Warning Network.
Note: Stop referring to “smoking pot” when vaporizers, such as the Volcano Vaporizer, is what’s recommended by doctors for medical marijuana.
