    Legalization, cultural acceptance and scientific interest in cannabis is rapidly expanding throughout the United States. As cannabis gains a stronger presence in society, the relationship between cannabis and gambling must be more closely examined. Essentially every aspect of gambling activity can and will be impacted by the presence (or absence) of cannabis. A few examples of critical issues to be explored include: the current landscape of how cannabis and gambling behavior interact, medical and psychological implications in the treatment setting and best practices for the treatment of cannabis use disorder among those with gambling disorder.
