The term marijuana is used to indicate dried hemp leaves, flowers, stems and seeds. The plant also contains delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and derivatives, molecules with modest psychotropic properties. Large quantities of THC can also be extracted from the hemp plant. Marijuana is the most widely used type of illegal drug in the United States and its consumption is widespread among young people. An annual survey of middle and high school students shows that consumption of the substance in recent years has stabilized after several years of increase.
