  1. This table contains the results of the sensitivity analysis investigating the association between the heaviness of cannabis use and suicide attempts amongst a sample of patients with substance use disorders. Heaviness of cannabis use was found to have a modest but significant association with suicide attempt in men (OR = 1.03, 95% CI 1.01, 1.05, p = 0.007), but not women (OR = 0.99, 95% CI 0.97, 1.01, p = 0.277)
