"Cannabis use, especially regular use, is associated with adverse health consequences including dependence symptoms, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, impaired psychosocial development, psychotic outcomes, and traffic fatalities. [1–4] Cannabis remains the most commonly used illicit drug in the world, with estimated 125–203 million current users in 2009. [5] The prevalence is high among adolescents. In Europe and North America, 16.4% boys and 12.0% girls 15 years of age used cannabis in past year, and 3.0% boys and 0.8% girls used regularly. [6,7]"

The quote above is in the "introduction" section of the report cited below. The report also describes the findings of the study that was conducted across 38 nations that contrary to the lies of cultural Marxists, greater availability and "liberalization" of marijuana increased its use by adolescents. Liberals like to indicate that making "pot" legal reduces usage, which is an utter lie that they tell to sell marijuana legalisation.

Read the full report from a study conducted in 38 nations around the world that was published on the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health website - here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4659554/
