Cannabis Use Disorder
A common diagnosis, particularly in states with a commercial marijuana market, is cannabis use disorder. According to Wikipedia: “Marijuana use and abuse has symptoms that affect behavior, physical, cognitive, and psychosocial aspects of a person’s life. Symptoms include agitation, bloodshot eyes, challenges in problem solving, and paranoia. Cannabis use is associated with comorbid mental health problems, such as mood and anxiety disorders, and discontinuing cannabis use is difficult for some users. Psychiatric comorbidities are often present in dependent cannabis users including a range of personality disorders.”
Marijuana use disorder is common and often untreated

Marijuana use disorder is common in the United States, is often associated with other substance use disorders, behavioral problems, and disability, and goes largely untreated, according to a new study conducted by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institutes of Health.
