Marijuana Use Across Ages
Research examining longitudinal marijuana consumption from adolescence into adulthood was recently published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence.
The results showed 28% of a US national sample reported longer-term moderate/heavy marijuana use, which was associated with negative health outcomes at age 50.The authors concluded that the early and late 20s may be especially important periods for marijuana use prevention and intervention.
The evidence-based screening and brief intervention InShape Prevention Plus Wellness Program has been shown to reduce heavy marijuana and alcohol use among young adults, and can therefore be an important tool for prevention specialists in combating young adult cannabis consumption: http://preventionpluswellness.com/inshape-prevention-plus-wellness/
