Project SAM published an infographic report about the lessons learned after 3 years of the marijuana experiment in Colorado. Marijuana use is rising in all age groups, as are traffic fatalities, poisonings and teen arrests. Teen admissions to addiction treatment programs are up 66%. Interdictions of the drug being transported to other states is up 521%.
Colorado’s marijuana experiment is a cautionary tale for other states. After three years it’s clear that CO’s marijuana experiment is putting the public’s health and safety in danger.
