Pot Is Just Too Easy To Get These Days

Pot Is Just Too Easy To Get These Days

Colorado and Washington, among a few others, are the flagship states for the legalization of marijuana. It seems to only be a matter of time before many other states follow suite, and you have to ask yourself, “how long until my kids are starting to see marijuana among their friends?”

If you happen to live in one of these states, this temptation might already be knocking on the door. There’s a smartphone app called “Leafly,” where “you can now filter strain searches to find the specific effect or flavor you're angling for.”

Obviously, you have to be over 21 to legally by pot in states it’s legalized in. But a new study shows that it’s easier for teens to buy the drug than it is to buy beer. The study found that “40 percent of teens could get marijuana within a day; another quarter said they could get it within an hour. In another portion of the survey, teens between the ages of 12 and 17 say it’s easier to get marijuana than buy cigarettes**, beer or prescription drugs. That number is up 37 percent from 2007.” One of the reasons we’re seeing this change is that the more states legalize marijuana, the more people will talk about it. The more people talk about it, the more readily available this (among other drugs) will be.

Another study found that “One in 12 students believes there's a teacher at their school who uses illegal drugs, according to the survey. A fourth of students said they've seen illegal drugs being sold at school, but a little more than half said they'd report someone they saw selling or using drugs, the highest level since 1996.”


Laws of marijuana legalization and purchasing.


One of the other unspoken rules is that you’re actually allowed to grow pot in your own home in Colorado. The Denver Post reports that “Amendment 64 allows home cultivation of marijuana, up to six plants per adult. (Denver's rules allow a household of two or more adults to cultivate a total of a dozen cannabis plants.) That's going to appeal to those partakers who are old enough to be leery about openly buying a substance that still remains, on the federal level, strictly illegal.”
