Pediatric Collections: Medical Risks of Marijuana

Pediatricians are actively involved in many efforts to decrease harmful exposures to children. In recent years, exposure to marijuana and other cannabinoids has become an increasing challenge. Legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational use has already happened in some states, and more states are considering this. This has raised critical questions for pediatricians and others who provide care for children and adolescents. What is the risk of use or secondary exposure, including accidental ingestion, to marijuana or synthetic cannabinoids? What factors are associated with use or secondary exposure? What are the implications for children and teens who use marijuana or synthetic cannabinoids?
