To the Editor We read with interest a Research Letter by Young-Wolff and colleagues1 published in a recent issue of JAMA Internal Medicine.

California was the first US state to pass the Compassionate Use Act in 1996, which allowed cannabis to be used medically,2 and adult use became legal in 2018, making cannabis more readily available than in recent decades.
