Trends in Psychosis Related to Hospitalizations Among Youth Following Cannabis Legalization in Colorado
Funded by: Harvard LEAP Center
Project dates: March 2021 - February 2022
Principal Investigator: Krawczyk, Noa

This project characterized trends in psychosis-related emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations across the Denver Health System and evaluated whether laws that lowered restrictions on cannabis sales in Colorado were associated with changes in rates of ED visits and hospitalizations for psychosis with and without comorbid cannabis use disorder diagnoses. It also assessed associations between cannabis dispensary density in Denver and rates of ED visits and hospitalizations for psychosis.
