Young adult sequelae of adolescent cannabis use: An integrative analysis

This research used data from three large, long-running longitudinal studies from Australia and New Zealand: the Australian Temperament Project, the Christchurch Health and Development Study, and the Victorian Adolescent Health Cohort Study, to investigate the association between the maximum frequency of cannabis use before age 17 years and seven developmental outcomes assessed up to 30 years of age (high-school completion, attainment of university degree, cannabis dependence, use of other illicit drugs, suicide attempt, depression, and welfare dependence).
