'[...]In fact, California teenagers showed improvements in all risk areas after reform.'
Before we all start dancing, doesn't it seem crazy that teenagers 'improve in risk areas' supposedly thanks to smoking marijuana? Is the world so screwed up that it takes a smoke to graduate school? Why would getting high reduce the risk of suicide?
It's good the article mentions causality as it isn't clear that decriminalising causes these improvements. It's good that any region can cheer about its improvements, but, man, it's not good if teenagers have to get high in this life to avoid suicide, ODing or criminal arrest.

I guarantee the legal market will be flooded with pesticide-covered gmo product.
Now from Marlboro: a marijuana cigarette. Mass-produced, mass-marketed, low quality material.
You have to ask yourself, which teenagers are seeking marijuana, or any drugs for that matter.
