A ban on medical marijuana dispensaries was on the ballot in 2012 and a forum was held near Loveland, Colorado in order to discuss the pros and cons of the issue. Though it was meant for supporters of the ban, those who disagreed with the proposed legislation also showed up – and the meeting got heated.
Since marijuana was legalized for medical use in Colorado, use of the drug among teens across the state has increased significantly. Admissions into drug rehab programs for help fighting dependence upon marijuana has also spiked. Many blame these issues on the legalization of the drug and want the dispensaries closed.

From Prescription to Addiction
Marijuana isn’t the only substance that is legal for medical use – and highly addictive. Those who take prescription painkillers too often or who abuse them often end up struggling with a lethal addiction. Though the two drugs are very different, they both create some of the same issues for patients who become dependent:
- Steals the ability to be functional at home, work or school
- Changes the personality
- Steals motivation and drive
- Causes health problems, relationship problems and financial problems
Another thing they have in common is that they can both be effectively addressed through drug addiction treatment.
