Marijuana use by US college students up, highest in 35 years
U.S. college students are using marijuana at the highest rates in 35 years, according to a report released Thursday.

About 43% of full-time college students said they used some form of pot at least once in the past year, up from 38%, a University of Michigan survey found. About 25% said they did so in the previous month, up from 21%.

The latest figures are the highest levels seen in the annual survey since 1983.

"Hey Chris,
I am so ignorant when it comes to drugs, including marijuana. But, I do understand your point and I couldn't agree more. FOLLOW THE MONEY."

Hi Frank...thanks. I didn't really know anything, either, until I began asking questions recently. I'm sure that Rhode Island will be approving recreational use before too long, but in the meantime, there's a dispensary right over the border that opened up recently, so people buy it there, and bring it back home.

Everywhere I look now, I see people smoking the marijuana oils. The vaporizer pens used are the exact same kinds that people use with nicotine cartridges, so it's impossible to police, and I dont think there's any odor to them (I don't think).

A few weeks ago, I had to drop off a chainsaw to my brother-in-law, and he handed me a bag to give to my wife. Come to find out that not only do my brother-in-laws, and sister-in-law use pot, but my own wife had him pick her up a canister of marijuana gummies, like gummy bears that you eat to get high. I couldn't believe it, and never, ever, would have thought she would get involved in that. I was in shock. Medical use is one thing, but recreational...very dissappointing where she's concerned, and out of charactor.

China had a massive problem with opium in the 19th century, thanks to British attempts to redress a trade imbalance with a country that didn't want to buy anything from them.

Lin Zexu was a scholar official (now a sort of popular hero) who tried to stop the trade with severe measures, but got a war with Britain for his trouble. One of the most evil things Britain ever did, all so they could have their stinkin' tea. They didn't care about ruining the lives of millions of Chinamen. Zexu even wrote a letter to Queen Victoria, who either never got it or wouldn't answer.

College students aside, and by the way, why restrict, and focus on the rise in use to college students? Just like they are with the casinos, each state is slowly moving towards recreational use marijuana for purely revenue reasons. The war on drugs always included MJ and hash, etc. In fact, how many are sitting in prisons right now for carrying/using/dealing, these illegal, mind-altering drugs?
So, individual states begin to see how much cash they can bankroll if they were to take over the action, legalize the drug, and become the exclusive suppliers/dealers. They see money signs, reverse the laws that held them as class-1 drugs, legalizing the drugs for recreational use, and sold only by dispensaries, that the state controls, places a heavy product tax on for their slice of the action, and by a stroke of the pen, they become instant drug dealers, with no competition. The very same dealers that they've been imprisoning for decades. Interesting.

Opium in America too. A certain species of poppies isn't legal to grow due to its opium potential. Tis a shame. They're beautiful flowers.

The bigger question is, does the government have the right to tell you what you are or are not allowed to do with your own body? Protecting us from ourself is beyond their biblical jurisdiction. It shouldn't have been illegal in the first place.

Yes, you are of course correct. Cultural mores are often at odd with scripture, but most simply find comfort by obeying what our culture says is okay.

The headline is somewhat ambiguous. Is it the marijuana use that is highest in 35 years, or is it the college students? I never met a person who got smarter on pot, but I guess it doesn’t require much intelligence to pass courses on normalizing sodomy, demonizing Christianity, and legalizing larceny through the redistribution of wealth.
