The Intersection of Tobacco and Marijuana Use in Adolescents and Young Adults

  • HERE (Pediatrics November 2019) - "In “Tobacco and Marijuana Use Among US College and Non-college Young Adults, 2002–2016”, Odani et al describe trends from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health on tobacco and marijuana use among respondents 18 to 22 years of age. They conclude that exclusive smoked tobacco use has decreased, whereas exclusive marijuana use has increased over the study period. This decline in smoked tobacco is encouraging because one of the greatest public health successes in the United States is the decrease in combusted tobacco use, specifically cigarettes, as seen in this 15-year study."
