One in seven college students smokes marijuana daily, near daily

September 4, 2015

“It’s clear that for the past seven or eight years there has been an increase in marijuana use among the nation’s college students. And this largely parallels an increase we have been seeing among high school seniors,” Lloyd Johnston, PhD, research affiliate, Population Studies Center, University of Michigan, said in a press release.
