The point here is that it is not the cannabis that is causal, but the determinant lies with the teen.  A young teen willing to defy laws and experiment with drugs suggests an unhealthy background– impoverished, ghetto, violence, lack of good parenting, and so on.  The cannabis just happens to be there and was the focus of this study.  Had the study been broader in scope, it would likely reveal experimenting with alcohol and prescription drugs as well.  So, this has much less to do with cannabis than with social norms, defiance, and other sub-ideal environments for the young.
