About the Authors
  • Cannabis dependence is controversial. What are the health and behavioral risks of becoming cannabis-dependent? What counseling approaches have been tested with adults and adolescents, and how effective are they? What are the arguments for legalization, regulation, or prohibition? Looking back and toward the future, what do we know and what do we need to learn? This state-of-the-science review sets out to answer all such questions, beginning with an historical examination and moving into diagnosis, classification, epidemiology, public health, policy, issues relating to regulation and prohibition, and evidence-based interventions.

    • Breaks through the controversial politics of cannabis use to give a clear, scientific synthesis of all the health-related issues relating to cannabis use
    • Reviews and assesses all the interventions applied to both adult and adolescent users
    • Gives the criteria for diagnosis and scope of cannabis dependence

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'Overall, this book is useful as a pioneering guide to understanding cannabis dependence in order to inform and implement topical prevention strategies, interventions, and policies. It is very comprehensive, and, also aims to dispel certain common myths regarding cannabis. As a review of the fresh research it could also prove valuable as a potential springboard for other researchers wishing to explore this area further.' Journal of Mental Health
