CT Prevalence and Trends

"Cannabis is the most commonly used drug, after alcohol, both in Connecticut and nationally. In Connecticut, the prevalence of cannabis use has been consistently higher than the national average over the last two decades."

"Cannabis use is widespread among young adults and adolescents in Connecticut. The 2018-2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) showed that, for 18 to 25 year-olds, past year cannabis use was higher than the national average (43.91% in CT vs.35.09% nationally). Similarly, past month use was also higher (27.22% in CT vs. 22.54% nationally). Among youth ages 12-17 in Connecticut, 14.08% had used within the past year, and 7.46% had used within the past month, also higher than their national peers. Among CT adults aged 26 and older, reported past year use (15.64%) and past month (10.52%) marijuana use were both higher than the US."
