Daily Cannabis Use in the USA Surpasses Daily Drinking

For the first time in history, the amount of Americans who use cannabis almost every day has surpassed the number who drink alcohol that frequently. This is a shift decades in the making as recreational marijuana use has become more mainstream and legal in many states.

An estimated 17.6 million people reported using cannabis daily or near-daily in 2022 compared to 14.7 million daily or near-daily alcohol drinkers, according to new data. In 1992, daily marijuana use hit a low point, with less than 1 million Americans claiming they used it almost every day.

“A good 40% of current cannabis users are using it daily or near daily, a pattern that is more associated with tobacco use than typical alcohol use,” said Jonathan Caulkins, a cannabis policy researcher at Carnegie Mellon University.

From 1992 to 2022, the per capita rate of reporting daily or near-daily cannabis use increased 15-fold. Caulkins noted that people may be more willing to report cannabis use as public acceptance continues to grow.
