CDC’s Division of Overdose Prevention offers many types of resources and publications about marijuana (cannabis) use and health, for audiences ranging from the general public to scientists and other experts.
As cannabis use increases across the U.S., cannabis-associated emergency department visits have also increased. Many states have adopted nonmedical use cannabis polices, yet we are still learning about the long-term health effects. With the increase of cannabis-associated ED visits, strategies are needed to develop interventions to prevent initiation among youth and protect populations at increased risk from cannabis associated harm.
