Drug legalization has been attempted elsewhere with foreseeable results in increased use. According to a 2004 report from the Dutch Health, Welfare, and Sports Ministry, marijuana legalization led to a near tripling of consumption among 18- to 20-year-olds. This increased led to the Netherlands revising its drug laws to severely regulate access to pot. In Canada, marijuana use by teenagers reached a 25-year peak in the wake of an aggressive decriminalization movement. The Ottawa Citizen reported that the Canadian government released a report showing that marijuana smoking among teens was "at levels that we haven't seen since the late '70s when rates reached their peak" reversing a trend toward lower use during the '80s.
