The real cost of marijuana legalization: Homelessness and trouble finding work.
Marijuana legalization is causing the homeless population in Pueblo, Colorado to rise. This video is a first-hand account of a young homeless man who was diagnosed with anxiety and depression disorder after starting to smoke marijuana at the age of 15. Devin was introduced to marijuana after his grandmother gave his mother (her daughter) the drug to combat chronic pain. The two started using the drug together and after moving to Colorado became homeless and are struggling to find work.
This story is a dramatic example of multi-generational drug use and how some of these conditions run within the family.
