A study in the July 2013 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings warns that marijuana use for pain may interfere with normal development (released June 24, 2013). β€œThe consequences may be very, very severe, particularly for adolescents who may get rid of their pain – or not – at the expense of the rest of their life,” said co-author J. Michael Bostwick, M.D., a Mayo Clinic psychiatrist.

Despite regular marijuana use, patients reported worsening of their pain and impaired functioning. None attended school full time and found it difficult to be more socially active with their friends.
