Legal Medical Cannabis Doesn’t Increase Youth Usage Rates [Study]

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

The legalization of medical cannabis is not associated with an increase in youth marijuana usage rates, and may actually decrease usage among adolescents. This is according to a new study published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

The study’s objective was to “assess the association between U.S. state medical marijuana laws (MML), the most liberal category of marijuana policies before legalization, their specific provisions, and adolescent past-30-day use and heavy marijuana use.”

The quasi-experimental study used state Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) data collected during 1991-2011 from 45 states to examine the effects of MML on youth usage of cannabis.

BOSTON (AP) — Changing marijuana laws aren’t necessarily making weed more welcome in the workplace.

For now, many employers appear to be sticking with their drug testing and personal conduct policies, even in states where recreational marijuana use is now permitted. Others are keeping a close eye on the still evolving legal, regulatory and political environment.

Voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada voted Nov. 8 to approve the use of recreational marijuana, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska, where it had previously been legalized. (A recount of Maine’s close result is scheduled.) More than two dozen states have medical marijuana programs.
