Fees Download Session Recording Instructions for Obtaining Credit
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes medical marijuana laws have within the college student population. A secondary data-analysis was conducted from a national dataset (n=34,135). Descriptive statistics, odds-ratios, and logistic regression were used to analyze the data. Results revealed that students in states with medical marijuana laws were more likely to have used marijuana and experienced more negative consequences than students in states without laws.
- Physicians and Physician Assistants
- Psychologists, Counselors, and Social Workers
- Health Educators
The participant should be able to:
- Identify negative outcomes experienced by college students in states with medical marijuana laws.
- Explain how the presence of medical marijuana laws can predict student use of marijuana.
- Discuss the current impact marijuana has on college students.
