January 2013

Dr. Youssef Mahfoud submitted his manuscript entitled "Preteen Marijuana Use: Harmless or Harmful?" to the Journal of Addiction. Results suggest preteen users (age 13 or less) of marijuana to be more likely than peers to seek treatment earlier, enter treatment with benzodiazepine dependence and nicotine dependence, smoke more cigarettes, and start smoking earlier in life than peers who use after age 13.
