    Many proponents of legalize marijuana do not realize the effects it has on our youth. Here is a prime example that marijuana use just isn't an adult thing and if it were legalized in Pennsylvania more reports like this one will surface. Making it legal to use is fine for adults who enjoy marijuana and want the law changed so they won't get arrested for using it but it is still legal for our children to use (unhealthy as well) and legalization only makes access to it by our children much more easier. All the teens will have to do is take it from the parents night stand.

      A lot of kids already just take it from their parents night stand! Most parents who smoke it dont hide it from their kids.

        I agree but if marijuana were legalized in this state many will be able to openly leave it around their homes without fear of arrest. This is where children can have easier access than before.
