Just wondering if there is any connection between marijuana use and stimulants, adderall, meth, ritalin?

Mike W., MD -

Per Dr. DeClerck:

Michael, thanks for your comment. While we know that use of marijuana is associated with the use of other medications/drugs of abuse I don't know of any hard data that specifically answers the question of the connections between marijuana and stimulants. The unfortunate reality of addiction is that oftentimes involves more than one substance. I usually use my discussions with patients regarding marijuana use to both screen for addiction/abuse of marijuana as well as other substances (such as alcohol, opiates, stimulants, etc.) It provides a great opportunity for health education and resource referral when our patients are struggling with addition.
