CT Prevalence and Trends

"Marijuana remains the most commonly used drug, after alcohol, both in Connecticut and nationally. In Connecticut, the rates for marijuana usage have been consistently higher than the national average over the last couple decades." 

"Marijuana use is widespread among young adults and adolescents in Connecticut. The 2017-2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) showed that, for 18 to 25 year-olds, past year marijuana use was higher than the national average (46.4% in CT vs. 34.8% nationally). Similarly, past month use was also higher (30.1% in CT vs. 22.1% nationally). Among youth ages 12-17 in Connecticut, 16.1% had used within the past year, and 8.4% had used within the past month, also higher than their national peers."
