A nationwide survey revealed that the number of daily or near-daily marijuana users in the US has surpassed that of alcohol drinkers for the first time. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported nearly 17.7 million daily or near-daily marijuana users in 2022, compared to 14.7 million daily or near-daily alcohol consumers. This shift is significant, as almost half of the states have legalized recreational marijuana, even though it remains illegal at the federal level.

The study also highlighted that trends in cannabis use align with changes in policy, with usage declining during restrictive periods and increasing with policy liberalization. From 1992 to 2022, there was a 15-fold increase in daily or near-daily marijuana use, while high-frequency use now mirrors patterns typically associated with tobacco rather than alcohol. Experts warn that this high-frequency use could lead to increased addiction and risks of cannabis-associated psychosis.
