All. An apology; the previously uploaded PAB announcement was sent to me in
error. The correct and current request is below. Note that Dr. Winters is one
of the contact people.

Call for Papers
Psychology of Addictive Behaviors

Special section on:
Marijuana Legalization: Emerging Research on Use, Health, and Treatment

Marijuana policies in the US are shifting towards medicalization and
legalization, and as a result prevalence rates and health consequences may
increase. Research on the potential effects of this drug is critical to inform
the public health debate.

Psychology of Addictive Behaviors is seeking empirical (research, both original
and meta-analyses) and theoretical (review) papers examining trends in
marijuana use and use disorders and clinically-related research on the drug's
addictive potential and health effects. The special section's aim is to profile
emerging theory and research on marijuana in the areas of epidemiology,
physiological, cognitive, and mental health, and treatment.

Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission
Portal (http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/adb/). The cover letter should
indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication
in the special section on Marijuana Legalization: Emerging Research on Use,
Health, and Treatment. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and must
adhere to usual journal requirements. The deadline for consideration for the
special issue is January 15, 2015.

Questions or inquiries can be directed to the Guest Editors, Ken Winters, Ph.D.
at winte001@umn.edu or Nancy M. Petry, PhD at npetry@uchc.edu.
