We now have the latest comparison chart of marijuana use in America. This is one of the most useful tools I have for showing the consequences of drug legalization.

The chart lists past-month marijuana use in three age categories. States with the highest use are at the top. You will quickly see that legalized states represent the highest marijuana use in the nation.

Although the rate of teenage use is extremely troubling, we can’t forget who is represented by the 18-25 year old group – TEENAGERS, COLLEGE STUDENTS, PEOPLE STARTING CAREERS, AND YOUNG MARRIED PEOPLE (OFTEN WITH SMALL CHILDREN).

In states ranking in the top 20, one quarter to one-third of these young adults are using pot. Their decisions will have long-lasting consequences for their education, employment, marriages, children, grandchildren, and society.

California Cannabis Control Board Report

KCRA 3 New (NBC) reported at 0600 this morning that the Bureau of Cannabis control was falling far short of its expectations.  No surprise.  We list below three paragraphs worthy of note, particularly the one pertaining to income.  It would be interesting to know how much the program has actually costs California economically, not to mention the human and environmental carnage.

Other states and local governments that believe cannabis is a financial windfall should take note.  

Three Key Findings in Report:

– Even with a thriving illegal market in California, only 15 enforcement unit staff positions have been filled, though 68 were authorized. “The bureau’s ability to process complaints, perform inspections and investigations and review … testing laboratories is severely impacted,” auditors wrote.

– The three agencies that regulate marijuana need to do a better job communicating. “Enforcement unit staff stated a central contact from the other licensing authorities has not been established,” the report found.

– There’s a cash shortage. The primary source of revenue for the agency is from application and license fees. About $200 million was expected to come in through June 30, 2019, but the bureau has collected only $2 million as of January 2019.
