The current study seeks to explore these issues through an examination of the prevalence of medical marijuana use and diversion of medical marijuana among adults in an at-risk sample, with a specific focus on identifying the factors that are related to medical marijuana use and acquisition. We use data from a sample of recently booked adult arrestees, which allows for early identification of substantial shifts in drug use.
