Why Are Young Adults So Depressed and Does Cannabis Have Anything to Do With It?

In today’s article it is not my attempt to dissect the study, but to talk about other reasons – besides cannabis, that could be linked to increase depression among young adults. The study notes increased depression pre-pandemic, especially among young adults. But it hastily credits this to “displacement of in-person social interaction with social media and digital technologies.” While social media overuse can be harmful, the issues depressing youth run far deeper. Not to say it doesn’t play a significant factor in my opinion.
