Oregon marijuana use among highest in U.S.
Oregon and seven other states were ranked in the top fifth nationally in 2003-2004 marijuana use in three age groups, according to a new state-by-state report from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Obviosuly the government isn't taking into account the headaches and hang-nails that cause Oregonians to need so much "medical" marijuana.
Certainly our lax attitude towards pot in this state can't be the cause of it's high usage. Just because we allow citizens to grow and posses more marijuana than even Cheech and Chong could smoke in a six month period doesn't mean that these people are passing it out to their friends or selling it to kids. It would be absurd to think there was a connection.
While we are on the subject it's also worth looking at a connection that Mac Johnson made complete with visual evidence.
SPECIAL REPORT, DUDE!
