Resumen

MARTINEZ-TORRES, Javier; RANGEL-NAVIA, Heriberto  y  RIVERA-CAPACHO, Eliana. Marijuana consumption among Colombian adolescents. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.9, pp.1016-1023. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0034-98872018000901016.

Background:

Marijuana consumption is a public health problem.

Aim:

To determine the life time prevalence of marijuana use among Colombian adolescents and the factors associated with its consumption.

Material and Methods:

Secondary analysis of data from a study aimed to determine the prevalence of smoking. A self-administered and anonymous questionnaire was answered by 814 adolescents aged 14 ± 2 years (439 women).

Results:

Ten percent of respondents consumed marijuana at least once in their life. A logistic regression analysis showed that professing a non-christian religion, being smoker and having an age over 12 years, was associated with marijuana consumption.

Conclusions:

There is a high frequency of marijuana use among these adolescents.
