The US the government has announced in a report that from the period 1992 to 2002 the number of people seeking help for marijuana abuse has almost tripled in the US.

A spokesman for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy told reporters “This report is a wake-up call for parents that marijuana is not a soft drug ", he also stated that the problem is bigger than people think.

Those pushing for its legalization dismiss the report saying that those seeking treatment for marijuana were only doing so to avoid prison and that the increase is in fact in marijuana related arrests not in those seeking help by themselves.
