June 17, 2023 · Ganjapreneur

survey by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and Morning Consult found Americans believe cannabis is less harmful than cigarettes, vapes, alcohol, and prescribed and non-prescribed opioids but more harmful than technology.

The survey also found that respondents believed that cannabis was less addictive than cigarettes, vapes, alcohol, prescribed and non-prescription opioids, and technology.

In a statement, APA President Dr. Petros Levounis said the survey showed “It is clear that we have gotten the message through that cigarettes are dangerous and addictive.”

Among those surveyed, 13% said they consumed cannabis daily, along with 21% who smoked cigarettes daily, 8% that used vapes daily, 7% that consumed alcohol daily, 4% that used prescribed opioids daily, 2% that used non-prescribed opioids daily, and 67% that used technology daily.

The poll was conducted April 20-22, 2023, and included a sample of 2,201 adults. (Full Story)
