    An obvious problem here is that this data is based only on the people who actually reported their marijuana use, but a patient is only likely to reveal his marijuana use if he is suffering from some problem. Otherwise there is no reason to mention it. So it could be that the vast majority of marijuana users in Australia do not report their marijuana use to their doctor and are not suffering any significant psychological problems.
