Your kid is way more likely to be poisoned by crayons than by marijuana [View all]

By Christopher Ingraham July 28 at 7:00 AM

A new study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics is making waves this week with the news that there's been a sharp uptick in emergency-room visits and poison-control calls for marijuana poisoning among children in Colorado.

The study found that the number of marijuana-related hospital visits for children under the age of 10 more than doubled since the opening of Colorado's recreational marijuana market, from seven in 2013 to 16 visits in 2015. Marijuana-related poison control calls for young kids also rose sharply over that period, from 25 to 47.

Opponents of marijuana legalization were quick to jump on the findings.
