The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment partnered with the University of Colorado to publish a biennial report entitled the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey. The report found that in 2013, 20% of high school students reported marijuana use within the last month. Additionally, 37% of high school students reported that they had used marijuana once in their lifetimes. Compared to 2011, where rates for high school students using marijuana within the last month was 22% and marijuana use in their lifetime was 39%, there is a slight decrease in minor usage following legalization. While the survey is not conclusive, it is inconsistent with the notion that marijuana use in teens will increase with the legalization of marijuana. 

Opponents also argue legalization poses the threat of a “gateway effect”. This theory purports that marijuana use will significantly heighten the chances that users will be more likely to experiment with different drugs or move on to become addicted to more dangerous drugs like cocaine and heroin. The correlation between marijuana and other illicit drug use can be explained by a wide variety of reasons that do not support the “gateway effect” theory. First, marijuana is not always the first illicit drug tried and the vast majority of individuals whose first illicit drug experience is marijuana do not go on to try other, harder illicit drugs. Second, some individuals are simply more likely to try mind altering substances. Factors such as psychological stress and employment tend to have a greater impact on drug use. Third, because marijuana is illegal it is more likely to be sold by individuals who are also involved with other illicit substances. Thus, individuals using and buying marijuana and not other illicit substances are forced to go to the black market for marijuana, where individuals are more likely to encounter other dangerous illicit substances. It is argued further that legalizing marijuana can alleviate this type of behavior by diverting those individuals in the illicit market (near other dangerous drugs) to a more safe, controlled, and legal environment.
