The potency of the marijuana available in the public market has increased to record high levels. With this increased potency, there comes increased risks to public health as well as public safety concerns. It’s now been 10 years since Colorado legalized commercial adult marijuana use. Now we can examine data from a variety of sources and see what impacts have taken place in the last decade.
