Colorado police try to prove cannabis legalization increases crime

There is very little evidence that legalization increases crime, and what is available, proves the opposite. Police in El Paso County, Colorado are going to start keeping a record of crimes connected to legal cannabis in an attempt to prove that legalization of recreational cannabis increases crime, according to a report from KRDO.

Commander John David of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office insists that he’s seen illegal grow-ops, among other crimes, in his county since the state legalized adult-use and sale in 2012.

Denver marijuana prices are cheap compared to those in other major cities

We don't blame you for complaining about inconsistent prices or expensive herb in certain parts of town, but one study shows that we don't have it too bad in Denver compared to other cities with legal marijuana.

Wikileaf, a website that lists dispensary menus, deals and strain information, recently released data comparing the average price of legal dispensary buds (whether medical or recreational) around the country. While most of Wikileaf's data compared the East and West coasts, it also ranked eight major cities according to how much an eighth of an ounce of weed costs.

Colorado’s highway cleanup program offers advertising loophole for marijuana businesses

Colorado state law dictates that cannabis companies may not advertise outside. But there may be a workaround.

Pot businesses in Colorado have discovered that the state’s highway cleanup sponsorship program offers a loophole to a ban on outdoor advertising by the industry. Under state regulations, marijuana companies are prohibited from advertising on billboards, taxis, bus benches, or other media “visible to members of the public from any street, sidewalk, park, or other public place.”

Colorado surveys show more adults are using marijuana, while youth rates remain flat

Since Colorado made recreational marijuana use legal for adults age 21 and up, the rates at which they're using cannabis have increased. At the same time, the percentage of youth who use marijuana has not.

The information comes from two recent surveys by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. One of the surveys, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, determined that adult marijuana use increased from 13.6 percent in 2016 to 15.5 percent in 2017 with 18- to 34-year-olds being the biggest driving force behind that spike.

Oregon, Colorado cannabis-glut studies provide lessons for California, pot-friendly states

Two of the first states to broadly legalize marijuana took different approaches to regulation that left Oregon with a vast oversupply and Colorado with a well-balanced market. But in both states prices for bud have plummeted.

A new Oregon report by law enforcement found nearly 70 percent of the legal recreational marijuana grown goes unsold, while an unrelated state-commissioned Colorado study found most growers there are planting less than half of their legal allotment — and still meeting demand.

The Oregon study released by the Oregon-Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area — a coalition of local, state and federal agencies — includes the medical and general-use markets and the illegal market, despite gaps in data on illicit marijuana grows.
