Prospective, Longitudinal Study to Isolate the Impacts of Marijuana Use on Neurocognitive Functioning in Adolescents
Ren, W., & Fishbein, D.
From the introduction: "Policies to legalize possession and use of marijuana have been increasingly supported across the United States. Although there are restrictions on use in minors, many substance abuse scientists anticipate that these policy changes may alter use patterns among adolescents due to its wider availability and a softening of beliefs about its potentially harmful consequences. Despite the possibility that these policies may increase the prevalence of use among adolescents, the effects of marijuana on neurodevelopment remain unclear, clouding arguments in favor of or opposition to these policies."
