Marijuana abuse and addiction is on the rise in Oregon. Problems with abuse and addiction to the drug causes more Oregonians to seek drug addiction treatment for marijuana than for any other substance, according to the Oregon Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). SAMHSA also reports that rates of past-year marijuana use, past-month marijuana use, and the least perception of risk associated with monthly marijuana use in the over 12 age group are among the highest in the nation.

How Does Perception of Marijuana Affect Drug Use and Abuse?
When young people believe that a substance like marijuana is not inherently dangerous, they take risks when it comes to its use. Not only are they more likely to use the drug, they are more likely to combine it with other substances, drive while under its influence, and use so much that they do little else. Before long, it’s not uncommon for people to develop a psychological dependence upon the substance or be unable to stop using it without experiencing headaches, insomnia and irritability. In the meantime, it can get in the way of absolutely everything – from family relationships to progress at work.
