Cannabis “Problems” Declining With Re-Legalization

At lest two of the “problems” the power structure associates with cannabis are declining.  There are fewer prosecutions for trafficking in cannabis, and fewer young people are being classified as having a problem with cannabis.  Here’s more:

Trafficking: “Federal marijuana trafficking prosecutions have declined significantly since the passage of statewide laws regulating the plant’s production and retail sale to adults, according to data provided by the United States Sentencing Commission. According to their latest factsheet, the number of marijuana trafficking offenders prosecuted at the federal level fell dramatically after 2012 – declining from over 6,000 annually to fewer than 4,000 in 2015.

“The number of marijuana traffickers rose slightly over time until a sharp decline in fiscal year 2013 and the number continues to decrease,” it concludes. The period of decline overlaps with the passage and enactment of adult marijuana sales in various US states, including Colorado, Oregon, and Washington.”

As for adolescents having problems with cannabis use: “Fewer adolescents are consuming cannabis; among those who do, fewer are engaging in problematic use of the plant, according to newly published data in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry . . . Researchers reported that the percentage of respondents who said that they had used cannabis over the past year fell by ten percent during the study period. The number of adolescents reporting marijuana-related problems, such as engaging in habitual use of the plant, declined by 24 percent from 2002 to 2013.
