Marijuana has always been popular in Lakewood, but its status as an illegal drug kept many residents from trying it. When there are already legal alternatives to getting high (such as drinking alcohol) many residents will turn to the legal choice while making their bad decisions. When you take an illegal drug and make it legal for consumption, you simply add to the options that residents can make when they decide to endanger their health.
In other words, the Lakewood residents that are using marijuana are not simply the ones that were using illegal marijuana before. In fact, some reports have shown that users accustomed to buying marijuana illegally are simply continuing to go to the suppliers that they already know and trust. After all, they’re used to their illegal sources for weed, and the illegal stuff is cheaper, too.
The state of Colorado taxes legal marijuana heavily, so there is a large markup to pay if you want to buy it in a pot store. There is also the fact that your name will go into a database of marijuana purchasers. The addicts that have already been using marijuana for years are much more likely to go on buying illegal weed than they are to switch over to this new system.
Another problem with the legalization of marijuana in Colorado is that it is tricking residents into thinking that this drug is safe to use. Nothing could be further from the truth. Marijuana is actually an incredibly dangerous drug. New research has shown that smoking marijuana causes brain deformities that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Just like smoking cigarettes, the smoke from marijuana can also cause throat infections and lung cancer. It’s simply never a good idea to inhale any kind of smoke into your lungs (no matter what some stoner tells you.)
While these health risks should be broadly known, they are getting lost in all the misinformation spread about marijuana legalization. Many Lakewood residents are jumping to conclusions by thinking that the drug wouldn’t be legalized if it wasn’t safe to use. The facts are that the drug is not safe to use, but lawmakers are approving it anyway because the state can make money off of selling the drug. It’s not surprising that lawmakers would approve a bill that put financial incentives over the health and well-being of their populace.
No one has to stand back and accept that Lakewood is going to continue to be a haven for illegal drug use. The main weapon that concerned parents have is to educate themselves on the truth about all of the most popular drugs in Lakewood. They can then proceed to educate their children about these drugs and prevent another generation of Lakewood residents from succumbing to the dangers of drug abuse.

In order to come off of any of these drugs, Lakewood residents need rehab services that actually work. Here are some of the points to look for in a rehab center.
The right rehab center for your family might not exist in Lakewood. If you don’t find it, keep on looking in other cities (or even other states) until you find the facility that is perfect for the person you care about.
