The topics for review were chosen based on recently published peer-reviewed publications outlining the potential health effects of marijuana use, and public health priorities identified from key informant interviews of local public health officials and the public.

An important note for all key findings is that the available research evaluated the association between marijuana use and potential adverse health outcomes. This association does not prove that the marijuana use alone caused the effect. Despite the best efforts of researchers to account for confounding factors, there may be other important factors related to causality that were not identified. In addition, marijuana use was illegal everywhere in the United States prior to 1996. Research funding, when appropriated, was commonly sought to identify adverse effects from marijuana use. This legal fact introduces both funding bias and publication bias into the body of literature related to marijuana use.
