I'll see if I can dig up the survey, but there was a study done of high school kids and the reasons they chose not to do drugs, rating them in importance and influence. Being illegal was last on the list after, family, friends, health, religion.
I would lay odds (and I bet there are studies on it) that legalizing marijuana for medicinal use correlates with an increase in usage. It's too early to see results from Colorado's recent legalization of marijuana, but I'd lay odds that in the real world usage goes up as well.
