New Study Indicates Marijuana Use is Linked to Psychosis in Teens
News Nation: New data suggests more people who use marijuana experience psychotic episodes. In some cases — particularly in young people — it can lead to permanent psychiatric disorders. Truveta, an analytics firm, reports diagnoses of marijuana-induced psychosis emergency department visits increased by more than 50% between 2019 and 2020. Additionally, the rate of cannabis-induced disorder emergency visits continued to increase through 2023, while these trends were not seen with the cannabis-involved emergency department visits. According to the U.S. DEA, the average THC content found in cannabis has increased from 4% in 1995 to 15% in 2021, with some products advertising THC concentrations up to 90% (News Nation). Wall Street Journal: Even one psychotic episode following cannabis use was associated with a 47% chance of a person developing schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. The risk was highest for people 16-to-25-years-old and higher than for substances including amphetamines, hallucinogens, opioids and alcohol (Wall Street Journal).
