For today's weed news we go to the entire great United States of America.

The United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration just released some new numbers about cannabis use among both youth as well as adults.

And guess what?

According to the agency's own report for 2018, American kids between 12 and 17 years old were actually using cannabis way less than they were back in 2002. As a matter of fact, self-reported use fell from 15.8% back in 2002 to just 12.5% in 2018! And the report also shows that back in 2012, when Colorado and Washington first legalized recreational cannabis use, teen consumption fell drastically compared to the year before.

"Regulation and education is a more effective and more preferable tool to discourage youth use and access then is criminalization... A pragmatic regulatory framework that allows for the legal, licensed, commercial production and retail sale of marijuana to adults but restricts its access use among young people - coupled with a legal environment that fosters open, honest dialogue between parents and children about cannabis' potential harms - best reduces the risks associated with the plant's use or abuse. By contrast, advocating for the marijuana's continued criminalization only compounds them," said deputy director of NORML Paul Armentano.

I fully agree. I think being honest with teens is the only way to go, especially since nowadays information is so easily accessible. By lying to kids and making up false dangers about things such as cannabis, or throwing it in the same category as substances like crack and/or heroin, we just end up losing the youngsters' trust and respect. It is all too easy to disprove any bullshit that we try to feed them by just Googling it these days, so going with the truth from the jump seems like a much more logical approach, at least in my opinion.

What's very interesting to me however, is that while self-reported use among teens is steadily falling the more places legalize recreational and medical weed, self-reported use among adults has steadily been climbing!

If you ask me, I feel like it's once again the fact that the truth about the plant is finally cutting through the decades of propaganda and bullshit, and people are making educated decisions about what they want to put in their bodies.

Of course, I am absolutely thrilled to hear that even the feds are admitting that legalizing cannabis is not making America's youth use it any more than they already had. It's actually having the opposite effect.

So why don't we just legalize that shit coast-to-coast already? Don't lawmakers care about our children? Don't they want them to be healthier when use less "drugs"?

... sometimes I wonder.

Anyway, according to the feds, that's what's up with weed users in the great United States of America!
