Some Colorado youth at higher risk for facing drug charges

The legalization of marijuana in Colorado has resulted in many benefits to the state, including what many believe to be a reduction in unnecessary arrests of adults for minor possession violations. However, the rules regarding recreational use and age are similar to those for alcohol, meaning that only adults aged 21 and older are allowed to partake. Since then, the number of drug charges against minors has rapidly increased, although some say that the arrests have been far from fair.

Teenage drivers are more likely to be involved in serious accidents than other age groups for a variety of reasons.
