"According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 4.4 million people age twelve or older meet the diagnostic criteria for cannabis use disorder. Cannabis use disorder is not the only risk associated with marijuana use. Marijuana users also have a higher incidence of memory impairment, anxiety disorders, social development problems, psychosis, and suicide than the non-using population does. In addition, smoke from the drug can have a harmful effect on the respiratory system." --
