Advertising Marijuana to US Youth


This new research published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention examined the association between exposure to marijuana advertising and current and frequency of cannabis use among US youth.

Study results showed:

1) Current marijuana use among adolescents was associated with exposure to marijuana advertising on storefronts, magazines or newspapers, billboards, the internet, television, and radio, and;

2) Exposure to marijuana advertising on the internet was associated with increased use of marijuana among adolescents.

One implication of this study is the need for greater regulations limiting youth exposure to cannabis advertising.

Another implication is the need for counter-advertising, marijuana media literacy education, and marijuana awareness training and media campaigns to address marijuana myths and norms which drive cannabis use among youth.
