Cannabis Use in Adolescents
Thirty-eight percent of high school students report having used marijuana in their life according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and there is evidence that marijuana use can have permanent effects on the developing brain when use begins in adolescence, especially with regular or heavy use. Dr. Duncan Clark, a nationally recognized expert on adolescent substance use disorders, will address cannabis use in adolescents at this Clinical Grand Rounds.
