Study: Adult-Use Legalization Associated with Decline in Youth Treatment Admissions
MAY 20, 2020
The enactment of adult-use cannabis legalization laws is not associated with an increase in marijuana-related youth drug treatment admissions, according to data published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence. A pair of researchers from Temple University assessed annual drug treatments admissions among youth for the years 2008 to 2017. Our results indicate that RML in Colorado and Washington was not associated with an increase in treatment admissions.
