Cyclic vomiting presentations following marijuana liberalization in Colorado.
This paper's primary objective was to determine the prevalence of patients presenting with cyclic vomiting before and after the liberalization of medical marijuana in Colorado in 2009. Its secondary objective was to describe the odds of marijuana use among cyclic vomiting visits in these same time periods. The researchers found that the prevalence of cyclic vomiting presentations nearly doubled after the liberalization of medical marijuana, with said patients more likely to endorse marijuana use.
