Dr. Elizabeth Stuyt is an addiction psychiatrist in Pueblo, Colorado. She joined Dr Randy Tobler to discuss what she's learned following the introduction of medical and recreational marijuana to Colorado.

"I think just it's very fascinating that we really didn't know why people liked marijuna for a long time, until the 1960s," says Stuyt.  

"When we voted for medical marijuana in Colorado in 2000, I wasn't that worried about it, because  I thought it was going to be just like alcohol and I'd be dealing with people who got addicted to it. No big deal" says Stuyt.    She says the marijuana is more potent than the public expected, "because we legalized it without any regulations in Colorado, we allowed this industry to create very, very potent marijuana."
