Cannabis-Related ER Visits on the Rise in Colorado

Cannabis-Related ER Visits on the Rise in Colorado Since its legalization in Colorado in 2009, emergency room trips triggered by cannabis use have tripled.

Inhaled cannabis has led to more visits overall, while food containing cannabis extract has accounted for more visits because of psychiatric and cardiovascular symptoms. Doctors are unable to quantify the exact cannabis doses, but suspect the ingested amounts are higher than inhaled doses.

Researchers have identified 9,973 cannabis-related ER visits at the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital between 2012 and 2016.

Dr. Andrew Monte, an emergency physician at the hospital, said the study was conducted to reaffirm his colleagues cannabis concerns.

This leads to the use of increased doses, which can put users in a dangerous hallucinogenic state.

Monte urged states seeking marijuana legalization to keep edibles out of the recreational marketplace.
