Joint Effort Series: Marijuana Concerns

February 08, 2019 08:06 PM

(ABC 6 News)-- Friday is the final installment of the ABC 6 News "Joint Effort" series that includes many voices in the recreational marijuana legalization conversation.

A controversial author who just put out a book has advocates for green, seeing red. Alex Berenson said he proves the argument that marijuana is directly linked to mental illness, violence, and should absolutely not be legalized.

Due to strict time constraints, ABC 6 News was not able to present all perspectives of if pot creates mental illnesses or if people with mental illnesses just happen to use drugs such as pot.

Berenson's book sparked critics to question if the studies presented his books were just what he cherry-picked and didn't present the full picture. 

We also wanted to provide crime data from the Colorado Department of Public Safety because it was mentioned in Berenson's interview.

Although it's the last in our week-long series, the conversation is far from over. We invites you to participate in the discussion through LegiSpeak.
