Tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and adolescence are all issues that should be of a public health concern now that many states have legalized the sale and use of cannabis. More thought and research is needed to identify which programs and prevention strategies are most effective in reducing youth use and initiation of marijuana. In this book we have gathered work by international researchers and presented papers on infant mortality in Indiana, discussion of pediatric immunizations, medical cannabis for epilepsy, issues concerned with food insecurity, food additives, various aspects of adolescent health, cyberbullying and much more that we hope will be of interest to the reader.
