Teenagers’ addiction rates for cannabis are about the same as for prescription opioids, according to a new study of drugs and youth.
A year after first trying cannabis, almost 10.7% of adolescents age 12 to 17 met the criteria of addiction. Those in the same age group who tried prescription opioids had a similar addiction rate of 11.2%, according to the study, published Monday in JAMA Pediatrics.
