Summary

A new study has linked tobacco consumption via cigarettes with both increased onset and relapse of cannabis use disorder (CUD). Published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, the study explored the relationship between cannabis consumption and “cigarette smoking initiation, persistence and relapse” in U.S. adults.
