MMJ Makes Youth Wary of Cannabis

Here’s one no one saw coming.  When cannabis is treated and used as medicine, young people will treat that cannabis as medicine.  Most people would just as soon not use medicine.  Guess what?

The enactment of medical marijuana laws is associated with an increase in the percentage of 8th graders perceiving the substance to be harmful, according to survey data published online ahead of print in the journal Addiction.

A team of investigators from Columbia University, the University of California at Davis, the University of Michigan, and Boston University evaluated whether students’ perceptions of marijuana had changed following the legalization of medical cannabis in their states.

Authors reported that the passage of medical cannabis laws was associated with an increase in the perceived harmfulness of marijuana among 8th graders, as well as a significant decline in their self-reported use of the substance. A similar change in the perception of cannabis was not observed in older adolescents.
