Cannabis and Kids

 

Child psychiatrists are grappling with the problem of pervasive use of marijuana in an age where legalization of use for adults has led to even greater use in teens. In this episode, Dr. Feder and Mara go over two recent interviews in The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report with Gabriella Gobbi, MD, PhD, of McGill University and Elizabeth D’Amico, PhD, of RAND. They discuss the impact of cannabis, its interaction with depression, and the conundrum of cannabis withdrawal. The team also goes over the CRAFFT tool for assessing substance use and motivational interviewing techniques to help teens cut back on marijuana use.
