Medical Marijuana Users are More Likely to Use Prescription Drugs Medically and Nonmedically

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Conclusions: Our findings disconfirm the hypothesis that a population-level negative correlation between medical marijuana use and prescription drug harms occurs because medical marijuana users are less likely to use prescription drugs, either medically or nonmedically. Medical marijuana users should be a target population in efforts to combat nonmedical prescription drug use.
