Here is another publication that we had in The Orange County Register discussing issues of legalized marijuana and its possible consequences:
About 300 South County students, parents and community members got a taste of what marijuana legalization could bring to California if the state follows Colorado’s lead.
Guest speakers Ben Cort and Dr. Judith Landau visited Orange County on April 2 to describe what can happen when a state legalizes weed – taxing and regulating it like alcohol.
Cort, a recovered user now a manager for the Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation in Aurora, Col., said pot is embedded in the state’s culture since voters passed Proposition 64 in 2012. “Now we have a marketing machine pushing it on you,” he said.
