Forty-nine percent of respondents said that they have consumed cannabis – up from one-in-three Americans two decades ago. Twelve percent of respondents identify as current consumers of marijuana. That percentage has remained stable over recent years.
Younger respondents, those who identified as politically liberal, and those who were non-religious were most likely to have had prior experience with cannabis. Men (16 percent) were more likely than women (9 percent) to identify as current marijuana consumers.
