I believe before any legalization that the states that have legalized use were known around the country as areas to have better marijuana and attracted the people that use it. So before or after legalization those areas had a higher percentage of users. Those factors should play into the findings.

Hi Andrea,

That's an astute observation! However, I think the key finding is that marijuana misuse occurs at the same rate within the marijuana user population regardless of the status of medical marijuana legislation and independent of the perception of "better marijuana" in certain region. If this perception higher quality marijuana can be quantified one could study the relation between perceived quality of marijuana vs. medical marijuana legalization or level of marijuana use.
