"We are going to see juvenile dropouts [from school] increase."
— District Attorney Dan May speaking on KVOR 740 AM this morning on the consequences of medical marijuana centers continuing as they have.
The most recent numbers from Colorado Springs School District 11, the city's largest district, indicate a high-school dropout rate of 3.7 percent. The city's second-largest, Academy School District 20, reports 0.6 percent for the same timeframe. Should centers live on through this school year, we'll follow up and report on the veracity of May's projection.
