How will Canadian Marijuana Legalization Affect Teens

Canada wants to legalize marijuana by Canada Day (July 1) next year. I won’t be something I’ll be celebrating considering how teens will be affected. The goal is to tax, restrict and monitor the sale of the product. The government feels that this ending of prohibition will be safe and effective. They believe that it will keep marijuana out of the hands of minors. What do you think?

Let’s compare it to the legal substance, alcohol. What are the results of legalized alcohol? How well is the government keeping this out of the hands of under age students?
