Medical Marijuana and teens smoking pot

Honestly, I am surprised anyone thought medical marijuana would lead to more teenagers smoking pot. Really? I guess enough people were worried about there being a connection, so a study was done.

Here's part of it from Times Healthland:

Despite warnings from opponents of medical marijuana, legalizing the drug for medical purposes does not encourage teens to smoke more pot, according to new research that compared rates of marijuana use in Massachusetts and Rhode Island after the latter state changed its laws.

Rhode Island legalized medical marijuana in 2006, but Massachusetts did not.

While marijuana use was common, there was no significant difference in rates of pot use between the years before and after legalization in Rhode Island. "We found no effect of the policy change," says Choo.
