Study Suggests Users of Marijuana and Alcohol Are More Aware of Health Risks Than Those Who Abstain

Users more likely to seek out information


Users of marijuana and alcohol may be savvier about the health risks posed by these substances than those who abstain, new research suggests.

The findings, which were drawn from a large sample of Swiss men, showed that men who frequently used marijuana, alcohol and tobacco sought out information about the health risks of those substances more than those who didn't use them.
