Washington’s second-in-the-nation legal marijuana market opened last summer to a dearth of weed, with some stores periodically closed because they didn’t have pot to sell and prices were through the roof. Six months later, the equation has flipped, bringing serious growing pains to the new industry. Prices are starting to come down in the state’s licensed pot shops, but due to a glut, growers are struggling to sell their marijuana. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)

Efforts to expand the legalization of recreational marijuana use in the US and abroad is increasing interest in marijuana, and stoking myths about its use.    

Because these myths paint marijuana in a favorable light, they could influence marijuana consumption among children, adolescents and young adults.  This may be shown in the lessening of perceived risks of using marijuana among American adolescents, reported in the Monitoring the Future Study: https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/high-school-youth-trends. 

For this reason, it is important to correct false marijuana claims, particularly the bedrock myth that marijuana use is harmless.   

This flyer lists 9 common myths about marijuana, and describes the myth-busting reality.
