Despite cannabis being illegal in many parts of the country, daily cannabis use among U.S. college students now exceeds daily cigarette use, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan.
According to the study, 6% of college students use cannabis on a daily basis, up from 3.5% in 2007.
As for cigarettes, 5% of college students report using them daily, down from 19% in 1999.
Although the consumption of cigarettes is down, the amount of students consuming smoking tobacco using a hookah is up to 33%; it was 26% the year prior.
The Monitoring the Future study is now in its 41st year. It has an annual samples range between 1,000 and 1,500 per year.
