Marijuana, vaping, and hallucinogen use among young adults is at a record high.
As part of a Monitoring the Future survey, new data shows that one in 10 young adults smoke marijuana on a daily basis and two in five used it in the past year.
“As the drug landscape shifts over time, this data provides a window into the substances and patterns of use favored by young adults,” said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. “Young adults are in a critical life stage and honing their ability to make informed choices. Understanding how substance use can impact the formative choices in young adulthood is critical to help position the new generations for success.”
Usage of vape pens among young adults has also increased.
Hallucinogen use among young adults is not likely, but the numbers have increased from last year.
