You might not think that legal weed is all that bad, but according to a new report from Engadgets, it could be a bigger problem than you think.
The site has discovered that legal pot is “the second-most-common drug” for children, and it is responsible for more than a third of all US drug overdose deaths.
In fact, legal weed could be responsible for as many as 50,000 deaths a year.
That’s almost a quarter of all drug overdose fatalities, according to the report.
It also suggests that illegal cannabis is responsible, on average, for around 8,500 deaths a day.
The report, titled “Legal Weed: What It’s Doing to Kids and Adults,” is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) latest report on drug use and deaths.
It is the second report that has been released in the past week on the health effects of legal cannabis, after one from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
The new study finds that while cannabis has been shown to reduce the risk of some health conditions, like obesity and diabetes, it has also been shown in some studies to be associated with an increased risk of developing psychosis, substance abuse, and even death.
The study found that while there is a “substantial association between cannabis use and psychotic disorders,” there is no evidence that cannabis use is associated with death.
Researchers looked at data from the US National Health Interview Survey, the most comprehensive survey of US adults conducted since 2000, and found that legal cannabis use was “significantly associated” with increased risk for several psychiatric conditions.
This included psychosis, depression, anxiety, and other symptoms.
The researchers also found that, while cannabis use “may be associated in some cases with poorer social adjustment,” there were no statistically significant relationships between cannabis and poor mental health.
According to the CDC, “the risk of substance abuse disorders in adults is associated primarily with adolescent and young adult cannabis use, and the association is generally stronger among users who use cannabis in the first year of adulthood.”
It also found “that the association between marijuana use and mental health problems is strongest among young people and white males, but not for African Americans, Native Americans, or Hispanics.”
Despite the findings, however, the CDC still recommends against legal weed for adults, saying that “most studies find that the harms associated with legal use outweigh the harms of illicit drug use.”
This article has been updated to include the new report and the CDC’s response to it.
