  • Cannabis as a substitute for alcohol and other drugs

    Posted on March 12th, 2011 TimB No comments

    Substitution can be operationalized as the conscious choice to use one drug (legal or illicit) instead of, or in conjunction with, another due to issues such as: perceived safety; level of addiction potential; effectiveness in relieving  symptoms; access and level of acceptance. This practice of substitution has been observed among individuals using cannabis for medical purposes.

    This study examined drug and  alcohol use, and the occurrence  of substitution among medical cannabis patients.
