Adolescent drug use is an ongoing epidemic. With teens having greater access to THC-containing products through statewide legalization and the growing appeal of nicotine-containing products such as flavored vapes, there is a high cause for concern of the long-term cognitive and behavioral effects of this adolescent drug exposure. In this talk, Dr. Dukes will share recent trends of teen nicotine and THC exposure as well as how pre-clinical models are being implemented to further understand the implications of this drug use on adulthood drug intake and relapse-related behaviors.
