Daily Marijuana Use Up Among College Students

According to a new and ongoing study on marijuana use published recently in Monitoring the Future, daily marijuana use among college students is significantly rising. Specifically, the University of Michigan study indicates that college students in the US presently smoke marijuana at a higher rate since 1980– the first year that complete college data were available in the study–even beating out daily cigarette use for the first time.

“I know all my friends smoke pot,” stated one anonymous college student.

5.9 percent of the students surveyed reported daily or near daily use of marijuana in 2014. In other words, 1 in every 17 college students in the US says they use marijuana nearly every day and/or a minimum of 20 times a month. Additionally, the study also reveals that six percent of American college students state they are heavy marijuana users as opposed to the five percent who say they drink or smoke heavily.

Lloyd Johnston, the principal investigator of the study, told USA Today College: “Most of what people hear today is what the benefits are. Young adults are seeing marijuana as less dangerous.”

The truth is a significant portion of the adult population in the United States share the above opinion. According to a Pew Research poll taken only a few months ago, 53 percent of United States citizens are in favor of marijuana legalization. The poll indicated that seven out of 10 Americans believe that alcohol consumption is more dangerous to one’s personal health than is using marijuana.

Finally, the study from the University of Michigan also indicates that the percentage of college students who smoked marijuana once if not more in the past month in which the research was conducted went from 17 percent in 2006 to 21 percent in 2014. Marijuana use the prior year went from 30 percent in 2006 to 34 percent in 2014.
