Seven areas in Colorado exceed the national average for positive workplace marijuana tests, federal drug czar John Walters said Monday.

Colorado's "hot spots," according to Walters, include three counties in metro Denver, the Western Slope and parts of the southeast, southwest and northwest corners of the state.

All had positive workplace tests for marijuana exceeding 3 percent. The area including Aspen and Crested Butte had the highest positive test rate, 3.92 percent.

The national average is 2.8 percent, Walters said.

"This data shows us where to put resources for treatment," said Walters, director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

John Walters wants the citizens of Colorado in treatment for smoking pot.
