Teenagers Are Actually Finding It Harder To Score Weed In Places Where It's Now Legal

Sort it out, guys

According to a Very Important Study, teenagers - with their long hair and their video games and their bright, stupid dreams of a fulfilling future - are actually finding it harder to score weed in American states where it has been legalised.

This year's 'Monitoring the Future' survey, which questions 50,000 American teenagers, reported that 81% of high school seniors (aged 17-18) felt like they could source the ol' jive cabbage with ease. This may sound pretty conclusive, but that figure has actually gone down from 90% 20 years ago.

States like Colorado - the first to legalise herbal refreshment - have turned marijuana into a legitimate billion-dollar industry, but buyers must be 21 or over to get in on the action.

Speaking to the Metro, Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, said: "I don't have an explanation This is somewhat surprising."

Cheers Nora. Keep up the good work.
