摘要

Studies on the relationships between marijuana use and quality of life have reported mixed findings. Based on a survey of 123 marijuana users conducted in Los Angeles during 2017–2018, we investigated the relationships between marijuana use frequency, severity of marijuana-related problems, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Results indicated that (1) marijuana use frequency was positively related to severity of marijuana-related problems; (2) severity of marijuana-related problems was negatively related to mental domain of HRQoL but was not significantly related to physical domain of HRQoL; and (3) marijuana use frequency was positively associated with mental health symptoms and physical health conditions, and both in turn were negatively linked to mental and physical domains of HRQoL, respectively. Reduction of marijuana-related problems and mitigation of mental and physical health problems may improve HRQoL among marijuana users. The study findings may contribute to developing treatment interventions for marijuana use that simultaneously address marijuana-related problems and associated mental and physical issues.
