In an article in Parents, “Weed and the American Family,” you’ll discover how open many U.S. parents are about their cannabis use today.
Based on a Yahoo/Marist College poll of 1,122 U.S. adults, the article offers some surprising findings:
- 54% of pot smokers are parents, and 30% have children under the age of 30.
- 47% of weed smokers admit to partaking in front of their children.
- Among parents who consume cannabis, 79% believe it’s socially acceptable.
- When asked what teen behaviors concerned them most, those who’ve tried, or currently consumer cannabis, placed it in last place, after cigarettes, alcohol, sex and cheating on tests.
With recreational cannabis legal in nine states and the District of Columbia, sharing experiences is becoming increasingly common among parents; witness the growing popularity of facebook groups like CannaMoms Uncensored and websites like Stonermom.com.
