A new study has revealed that young adults who are dependent on marijuana and alcohol are less likely to achieve adult life goals.

The research by UConn Health scientists was presented on November 5 at the American Public Health Association 2017 Annual Meeting & Expo, as mentioned by Medical Xpress.

Researchers found that the individuals who were dependent on either marijuana or alcohol during their teenage year have achieved lower levels of education.

They were less likely to be employed full time or get married. Also, had a lower social economic potential.
