Study: adult-use legalization associated with decline in youth treatment admissions

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.

Separate studies have reported a dramatic and consistent decline in the prevalence of so-called cannabis use disorder over the better part of the past two decades. Self-reported use of marijuana by young people has also been in decline both nationally and in legal marijuana states. Historically, nearly half of all young people admitted to drug treatment for marijuana were referred there by the criminal justice system.
