Researchers looked at ER visits from 13 to 21-year-olds at Children’s Hospital Colorado (or one of its urgent-care centers) between January 2005 and June 2015. They found that visits due to marijuana increased from 146 in 2005 to 639 in 2014. 

The state legalized marijuana for non-medical use in 2012.
