ARE YOU PART OF THE 52%?

Did you know that a little more than half of Americans ( 52% ) have tried marijuana ?

According to a recent study conducted in 2023, 17 percent of American adults smoke marijuana. Over the last decades, the percentage of people who have tried marijuana experienced an increase.

Futhermore, according to a YouGov recent survey that was conducted in 2022, stated that out of the 52% who have tried it, “43% have used marijuana in the past year and among those 72% have used it this past month”.

Among the groups examined, adults between the ages of 45 and 64 are most likely to say they’ve tried marijuana (63%), followed by liberals (60%), Americans who live in the Western U.S. (56%), and white Americans (56%). Groups that were least likely to report having used marijuana include 18- to 29-year-olds (37%), Black Americans (44%), conservatives (45%), and Americans living in the Northeast (48%)” (YouGov).

Currently, it appears that younger Americans are more likely to use cannabis on a regular basis.

Among the 18- to 29-year-olds who have tried marijuana, 44% say they use it at least once a week (YouGov). When you really think about it, is “at least once a week” even a lot? Think about all the other things we do in a day and a week. When you use/need other medication(s) do you really only use once a week? Probably not.

It’s worth mentioning that those who have tried cannabis before are not just from the states where recreational marijuana is legal.  Marijuana is all around us and the negative stigma around it is lessening more and more each year. Thankfully!

Heres to hoping we can get to a place in the world where it is seen as a beneficial type of medicine all around.
