We identified 48 relevant studies, of which 16 were
of higher quality and provided the most robust evidence.
Fairly consistent associations were noted between cannabis
use and both lower educational attainment and increased
reported use of other illicit drugs. Less consistent
associations were noted between cannabis use and both
psychological health problems and problematic behaviour. All
these associations seemed to be explicable in terms of noncausal
Interpretation Available evidence does not strongly support
an important causal relation between cannabis use by young
people and psychosocial harm, but cannot exclude the
possibility that such a relation exists. The lack of evidence of
robust causal relations prevents the attribution of public
health detriments to illicit drug use. In view of the extent of
illicit drug use, better evidence is needed. (Macleod et al., 2004)
