Teen Marijuana Use Psychosis and Mental Illness Investigation

Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports from the Wall Street Journal and other outlets indicating that more potent cannabis and more frequent and widespread use are contributing to higher rates of psychosis in teens and other young people.

Thousands of teenagers and young adults have developed delusions and paranoia after using cannabis. Legalization efforts have made cannabis more readily available in much of the country. More frequent use of marijuana that is many times as potent as strains common three decades ago is leading to more psychotic episodes, according to doctors and recent research.
