Tom Angell, Founder and Editor of Marijuana Moment, went even further and analyzed the data from multiple states, which showed that the percentage of 12-17 year olds who used marijuana in the last month had also decreased in Washington and the District of Columbia since legalization in their respective states..

The results are clear: legalization does not lead to an increase in adolescent and teenage cannabis use. In fact, legalized cannabis contributes funding to to substance abuse prevention programs, college scholarships, and are literally building new schools in Colorado.
