8th Grade Sober – Legalizing Weed Does Not Lead to an Increase in Middle School Cannabis Use Says New Study

A recent study, published in the journal Addictive Behaviors, set out to explore the impact of legal cannabis laws on adolescent usage. It examined lifetime and past 30-day cannabis consumption among middle school-aged adolescents in Nevada and New Mexico. The study ultimately confirmed what many prior studies have suggested: the commencement of state-licensed cannabis sales does not correlate with a surge in cannabis use among young individuals.
