Cannabis is the illicit drug most widely available and used worldwide [1,2], consumed by between 125 and 203 million people, largely younger age group (15–34 years), which corre- sponds to an annual prevalence rate of 2.8%–4.5% [1,2]. Despite the fact that many individuals tend to discontinue cannabis use after their initial experimentation with the drug [1] and the percentage of individuals who develop dependence is lower than that associated with alcohol (15%) or tobacco (32%) use, around 9% of cannabis users develop dependence in the long term [3,4].
