Legalizing marijuana not a good idea

February 16, 2013

The substance abuse prevention community is alarmed about recent successes to legalize marijuana.

A few states had previously passed laws permitting the medical use of marijuana, but at the last election two states (Washington and Colorado) legalized the RECREATIONAL use.

This was a controversial step since possession of the drug remains in violation of federal law, and it remains to be seen how this conflict in regulation is resolved. The larger question is whether legalization is the right thing to do, and the response from the drug prevention community is a resounding no.
