    Marijuana & Mental Health

    Marijuana & Mental Health

    Even while many states have passed legislation pertaining to "medical marijuana" and others have decriminalized or even legalized recreational use, a debate continues within society as to whether marijuana is simply a harmless substance that should be fully legalized, a possibly beneficial treatment for patients with certain illnesses, or a drug with the potential to worsen addiction and cause mental health problems. The controversy persists in the medical community as well, where accumulating evidence implicates marijuana use, especially in adolescence, as a risk factor for poor educational achievement and substance use disorders, as well as schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders -- all of which complicates the heated discourse on legalization.

    Although other books have explored the medical marijuana and the neuroscience behind marijuana, no single source of comprehensive information on marijuana and mental health in modern American society has existed to date. Balanced, focused, and highly readable, Marijuana and Mental Health fills this void. It provides an academic foundation for further study while also informing clinical mental health practice as well as policy decisions by articulating the connection between marijuana and mental health, particularly in the United States.

    Chapters offer a concise compilation of research in this area, discussing topics such as: - The effects of marijuana on the brain and mind- Marijuana-related legislation- Medical marijuana- Comorbidities between marijuana misuse and mood and anxiety disorders- The complex link between marijuana use and psychotic disorders- Synthetic cannabinoids- Treatment and prevention of marijuana misuse

    Relatable clinical vignettes that contextualize these issues and illustrate the clinical applicability of the content, as well as key chapter points that emphasize major takeaways, make Marijuana and Mental Health the authoritative reference for clinical and research psychiatrists, psychiatric residents and fellows, clinical psychologists, and psychiatric nurses.

    Do yourself and client a favor by getting one! "If you are in the mental health field I highly recommend this guide. I have been asked numerous times where did I get this and can I lend it. This is my go to reference when at the clinic as it covers everything I need to know when doing assessments etc. However, if you feel more comfortable carrying that large DSM around by all means do so but for me this guide slips easily into my pocket for use at any given moment."
    --Timothy T. Hinote
