Young Americans Are Twice As Likely To Smoke Marijuana Than Cigarettes, New Gallup Data Shows

According to recent Gallup data, young Americans are more likely to use marijuana than cigarettes, with a rate of usage nearly twice as high. The data indicates that 22% of Americans aged 18 to 29 report using marijuana, compared to only 11% who smoke cigarettes.

This shift in usage patterns may be due to changing attitudes towards marijuana use, as it becomes increasingly legalized across the United States. The Gallup poll found that support for marijuana legalization has risen to 68% among all Americans, with even higher levels of support among younger age groups.

The data also showed that usage rates for both marijuana and cigarettes decline with age, with just 8% of adults over 65 reporting marijuana use and 7% reporting cigarette use. This trend may be indicative of a generational shift in attitudes towards drug use.

However, it is important to note that marijuana use, especially in younger individuals, can have negative effects on brain development and mental health. As such, it is important to approach drug use with caution and to make informed decisions about the potential risks and benefits.
