DENVER (AP) — Colorado kids aren't smoking more pot since the drug became legal — but their older siblings and parents certainly are.

That's according to a long-awaited report giving the most comprehensive data yet on the effects of Colorado's 2012 recreational marijuana law.

The state released a report Monday detailing changes in everything from pot arrests to tax collections to calls to Poison Control.

It says marijuana use by people under 18 didn't rise significantly in the years after the 2012 vote.

But use of the drug rose markedly among people 18 to 25, and among adults over age 26.
