Rees research continues to shed light on marijuana legalization

Research done by Daniel Rees, Economics Professor, on the legalization of marijuana and its effects continues to catch the attention of the press. Rees’ findings that access to legal marijuana leads to a drop in how much alcohol people drink, especially beer, is of particular interest in the craft-beer culture of Denver and Colorado. Further Rees research finds that a rise in marijuana use among American teens over the past 20 years has no significant tie to the legalization of marijuana for medical use.
