Fascinating as always, Mary Pat!

I was crudely looking to see if I noted any correlation with marijuana legalization - either giving some credence to the “gateway drug” argument or the possibility some might turn to cannabis rather than prescription opioids… but nothing is jumping out at me. I’d be curious if you’ve looked at it and noticed any correlation or lack thereof.

It’d also be interesting if there was any correlation with alcohol use, though perhaps more difficult to track? I suppose one could look at DUI’s…
