The latest Gallup poll has found that nearly 25 percent of young Americans (aged 18 to 29) are admitted cannabis users — this is about double the rate of the rest of the population, of which 13 percent say they “regularly” or “occasionally” use and/or smoke cannabis.

Cannabis usage rates could be on the rise, because — according to the pollsters — this data “is on par” with the average 22 percent of young adults who said across three surveys from 2015 to 2017 that they smoked cannabis.

Cannabis use is not only most prevalent among 18- to 29-year-olds but it is also much more common in the West, where all the coastal states in the continental U.S., including Alaska, have legalized adult-use cannabis.
