While Iowa is among the ten lowest states in the country for past month or past year marijuana use, marijuana was still the leading cause for substance abuse treatment in the state. In 2010, 9,112 people were admitted to treatment centers in Iowa to combat chronic marijuana use, according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). In Iowa, those between the ages of 12-17, 18-20, 21-25 made up the biggest bloc of those admitted for marijuana use problems in 2010. 24.3% were between the ages 12-17, 20.3% 18-20 and 21.4% 21-25. These are the ages when you are completing school, entering or finishing college and entering the workforce. Chronic marijuana use will negatively affect upon all of these things. According to the National Institute of Drug Use, chronic marijuana use (such as smoking twenty marijuana cigarettes per month) can cause memory loss, difficulties with problem solving and logical thinking, as well as lack of coordination.
