With the new pot laws come questions about the ramifications of legalized pot.

The state of Colorado has launched a new website to help address some of these questions.

Questions those behind the website hope to answer include:

· What are the long-term health impacts of marijuana use?
· Is marijuana more harmful to adolescents than adults?
· Is it legal to consume marijuana in public places?
· Can a person be charged for driving under the influence of marijuana?
· Is it safe to eat or drink marijuana-infused products?
· How do I talk to my child about marijuana?

Topics on the website will range from long-term health impacts, to safe use of marijuana, to driving while impaired.

According to a release from the state public health department, the website features "current, research-based information and resources from the Colorado departments of Transportation, Education, Revenue, Human Services, and Public Health and Environment."
