Comparing older nonmedical and medical cannabis users: health-related characteristics, cannabis use patterns, and cannabis sources
Conclusion: Medical and nonmedical users did not differ on physical and most behavioral health indicators. Most obtained cannabis from private/informal sources. Some medical users are likely to self-treat without healthcare professional consultation. Healthcare professionals should engage older adults in discussions of cannabis use and behavioral health needs.PMID:33915068 | DOI:10.1080/00952990.2021.1908318 (Source: The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse)

Common themes in early state policy responses to substance use disorder treatment during COVID-19
Conclusion: States have made significant policy changes to SUD treatment policies during COVID-19, particularly regarding telehealth and facilitation of remote care. Understanding these changes could help policymakers prioritize guidance during the pandemic and for future health crises. Impacts of policies on disparate treatment populations, including those with limited technological access, should be considered.PMID:33909518 | DOI:10.1080/00952990.2021.1903023 (Source: The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse)

Evaluation of spin in the abstracts of systematic reviews and meta-analyses focused on treatments of alcohol use disorder
Conclusions: Spin was found in more than 40% of systematic review abstracts that evaluated pharmacotherapies in the treatment of AUD. Coupled with the finding that the majority of systematic reviews on the subject were of low quality, increased awareness of spin among physicians may be warranted.PMID:33900844 | DOI:10.1080/00952990.2021.1903022 (Source: The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse)
