Abstract

Background: Eleven states and the District of Columbia have implemented laws allowing for the use of cannabis, which is prompting studies of the patterns, determinants, and health outcomes of its use, primarily among young adults. Cannabis use is less prevalent among older adults, and studies of its use in this population are scarce. We believe more investigations are warranted.
