  • Looking at Canadians who’d started using Cannabis at different ages, and the difference among them, scientists conclude that 19 is a good age for legal weed.
  • Canada legalized early, and they started with 18, but the new study shows a big difference in life outcomes when people start smoking a bit later.
  • Interestingly, life outcomes were better when people started smoking at 19, worse when they started at 18, and similar to those that started between 20-25.
  • These findings should be used to inform decisions by policymakers around the world who want to legalize in their countries.
