According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Connecticut who used marijuana in the past year is 336,000. Of the 336,000, 52,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 125,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 158,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 198,000. 27,000 were ages 12 to 17, 76,000 were 18-25 and 94,000 were age 26 or older.
Natural marijuana use in Connecticut has now changed and increased to synthetic marijuana or known as Fire, Genie, Sence, Spice, Silver, Spice Diamond and Skunk. It is anywhere from 4-100 times more potent than natural marijuana. It can be mixed with food, drink and can be smoked. Synthetic marijuana is causing harmful effects in people such as delusions, hallucinations, becoming violent, confused, nauseated, chest pain, heart attacks and difficulty breathing and even death. Connecticut has now made it illegal to have possession of or the selling of synthetic marijuana. On March 2, 2013 Connecticut State Police seized 22 pounds during a traffic stop with an estimated street value of $20,000.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Connecticut may tell people that they are not responsible for their actions because they have a disease but at a non-12 step program they teach you how to be responsible and that you do not have an addiction to marijuana.
