CONFIRMED: Legalization Turns Mary Jane Into a Square Drug Kids Don’t Want to Try

The results are in and they're just what you would expect. After eight US states decriminalized marijuana, and another twenty allowed it to be smoked as medicine, its use by adolescents has fallen to an all-time low. Nobody should be surprised by this. Without being illegal cannabis is about as cool as Ed Sheeran, except it's even more boring. The chance it might get you chased by cops is literally the only fun thing about weed.
