Dont expect kids to have a lot easier access to pot under the states new law allowing adults to possess an ounce of marijuana.
Teens already report that they can score weed pretty easily. In Washington, 66 percent of high-school seniors surveyed last year said its very easy or sort of easy to get.
And a new national survey says teens wouldnt change their behavior much if they could buy and consume legal marijuana.
Bigger changes will come, said Jonathan Caulkins, a state consultant on marijuana policy, when for-profit companies start marketing pot, something thats never been done before; and if they try to dilute regulations, something done by alcohol and tobacco industries, he said.
