Marijuana popularity in Oregon has been growing for a quite while now, and it was no surprise that the state legalized cannabis for recreational use back in 2014.
The Oregonian reports:
Marijuana use among adults 26 and older in Oregon has doubled since 2006, while at the same time use has gone up only slightly in the rest of the country.
Overall, 1 in 10 adults in Oregon said they use the drug, which remains especially popular with young men. Oregon’s marijuana use among adults has exceeded national trends for the past decade.
The Oregon Health Authority this month issued a report detailing marijuana trends and attitudes among Oregonians. It is the state’s first comprehensive review of the latest government public health surveys looking at who consumes marijuana in Oregon and how frequently, as well as attitudes about cannabis, which is now legal for recreational use.
