Abstract

This chapter explores the risk factors associated with cannabis use. In doing so, a distinction is drawn between cannabis use per se and the development of problematic cannabis use. The chapter reveals that many factors are linked with problematic cannabis use, including genetic vulnerability to certain psychological conditions, early use of tobacco and alcohol, dysfunctional family relationships, behavioural problems, peer associations, family substance use and early initiation.
