A national study puts Rhode Island on top of Colorado as having the highest number of regular marijuana users.
…Colorado legalized recreational use of marijuana in 2012. The study’s numbers are among the first to quantify marijuana use in Colorado since pot possession and use became legal for those over 21. But they don’t include data from 2014, when recreational marijuana shops opened.
University of California, Los Angeles, professor Mark Kleiman says the study does not say much about the long-term effects of legalization.
