ASAM Weekly November 28, 2023
SAMHSA recently released results from the 2022 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). While further analysis of the data is expected to follow, many of our featured publications this week provide important context for the numbers.
Marijuana continues to be the most commonly used illicit substance in the US, bringing with it unique public health concerns. Researchers from the largest genetic study of cannabis use disorders (CUD) found a potential link between CUD and lung cancer and expanded upon our understanding of psychopathology and cannabis use (Nature Genetics). The CDC published an important yet unfortunate case report on the death of an employee from cannabis-related occupational asthma, and also found evidence of symptoms in other co-workers (MMWR).
