Does Legal Marijuana Increase Teen Access to the Drug?

Health experts feared that legalizing marijuana would make it easier for teens to acquire the drug. But a new study has found that teens in Washington State do not find it any easier to get marijuana today than they did in 2012, when the state made it legal for adults age 21 and older to possess small amounts of the drug.

Judge John C. Kissinger Jr. ruled after a closed-court session with Richard Waite, 49, of Hinsdale and Waite’s attorney Matthew E. Hill that there’d been “a fundamental breakdown of the attorney-client relationship.”

As a result, Kissinger said a hearing on a pending defense motion could not continue with testimony from Hinsdale Police Chief Todd A. Faulkner and Mark J. Myrdek, a criminal investigator for the state.

Tuesday’s hearing was held in Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene in preparation for Waite’s sentencing Nov.
