U-M Institute for Social Research professor of research and Monitoring the Future panel study lead investigator John Schulenberg discusses the increased levels of hallucinogen use among college students – the highest level it has been since the early 1980s. The study notes that almost “1 in 12 college students used marijuana on a daily basis,” affecting academic performance and leading many to drop out of college. Schulenberg highlights multiple reasons for the continuing increase in hallucinogenics, such as the decline in “perceptions of risk of harm” from daily marijuana use.
