The objective of the proposed rapid response research, in a state with legal medical and nonmedical cannabis use, is to better understand medical use of cannabis in a single large health system that routinely asks primary care patients about the frequency of past-year cannabis use. Specific aims are to: 1) Describe medical cannabis use in primary care patients, based on EHR documentation and 2) Cnoduct qualitative interviews and a subsequent survey of >1,8000 primary care patients who use medical cannabis to understand patterns of use.
