Parents will be relieved to know that medical legalization hasn't shown any negative effects on kids.

Curious to know the effects of legalizing medical marijuana for the younger population? Far from the stereotypical image of kids running around rampantly high, a new study has shown that states which have legalized medical use of cannabis actually had higher rates of teenage marijuana use before the policy change when compared to other states that still uphold marijuana as illegal.

None of the results showed an increase in usage following the legalization of medical marijuana.
