Pot Less Available to Teens In Netherlands Than U.S.

In an article published earlier this week in the journal Addiction Robert J. MacCoun — a professor at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and the UC Berkeley School of Law — finds that teen pot use in Netherlands dropped from 1997 to 2005. He also found that “Dutch youth report high rates of availability of cannabis, but not as elevated as reported rates in the United States and several other countries.”

So while the U.S. has spent one trillion dollars over forty years in a failed war on drugs we have more weed in our schools the Netherlands. That’s a drug war fail.
