Study: Daily Cannabis Use Exceeds Daily Cigarette Use Among U.S. College Students
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.
