Step parents and family conflict can push teenagers to cannabis abuse and dependence.
University of Queensland research shows that teenagers who live with a step parent and are in an unhappy family are more likely to develop serious drug dependencies than teens who live with their biological parents or who have happily married parents.
Children who lived with a step father were more likely to abuse cannabis than those living with single mums.
Financially poor mothers and those who were under 20 years of age when their child was born, were more likely to report cannabis use disorders than mothers who had a tertiary education.
