Current Drug Trends webinar series- Part 1: New Psychoactive Cannabis Products

The 2018 Farm Bill has led to the introduction of several types of psychoactive cannabis products in the U.S. market. This presentation explores the diverse range of products that have recently become available and discusses the associated public health concerns. We will delve into a series of interconnected studies that investigate the marketing of Delta-8 THC, as marketing elements (such as products, prices, promotion, and placement) greatly influence usage, especially among young people.

Presenter: Deborah Hasin, PhD (Columbia University) Over the last two decades, the cannabis landscape in the U.S. has changed considerably.

Learning objectives: To be able to describe time trends in the prevalence of cannabis use and cannabis use disorder; To be able to describe the influence of state-level legalization of cannabis on rates of cannabis use and cannabis use disorder; To be able to describe sub-groups of the population at particular risk for increases in cannabis use and cannabis use disorder, and some potential explanations of these differences.
