Compared to the last five to ten years, the use of marijuana and hallucinogens has increased in young adults between the ages of 19-30. A study conducted by scientists at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research suggests that the use of marijuana, hallucinogens, vaping, and alcohol have all sharply increased in the last year compared to their pre-pandemic levels when the rate of usage was more consistent.
