RESULTS:
Beginning in 2009, the odds of screening positive for risk-prone marijuana use significantly increased, coinciding with dramatic increases in use of Colorado's medical marijuana program. Young males were most likely to screen positive. Among users, there was a small, statistically significant increase in severity of use over time.
CONCLUSIONS:
Findings suggest that health care providers may be serving increasing numbers of patients using marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. (Richmond et al., 2013)
