MarijuanaMarijuana, often identified as a “gateway” drug is the most commonly used illegal drug in the U.S. Women utilize marijuana just as often as men and often report they use primarily as a means to relax. Although many of the women suffering from marijuana addiction began using the drug in their early to late teens as a measure to “fit in,” there is an increase in marijuana abuse among adult women.
