For today's weed news we go to all the great United States of America.
The JAMA Open Network just published the results of a study they ran on over 165,000 participants during 2016 and 2017, which focused on why people who use cannabis use it.
They found that about 22% of all cannabis users surveyed said they used Weed for purely recreational reasons. About 46% of the participants answered they used it for purely medical reasons, thus the researchers concluded that twice as many people use cannabis for medical reasons compared to just wanting to get faded.
"Adults with medical conditions, especially those with respiratory conditions, cancer and depression, we're more likely to use marijuana," said the researchers in their conclusion.
The study also noted that out of those who do consume cannabis, over 77% prefer smoking as their favorite method of cannabis consumption.
One thing that I personally don't understand about this particular study is why the percentages of cannabis users (22% recreational and 46% medical), doesn't add up to 100%. Maybe the rest of them use it for both reasons?
Anyway, I'm sure that as more and more states legalize recreational weed, or we finally do so on a national level, this ratio is for sure going to change.
But for now, that is what's up with why people consume cannabis in America.
