Marijuana use at historic high amongst college-age adults

More college-aged adults are using marijuana. That's according to a study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. 

The study found that over the past five years, there has been a rise in college students using pot. 

Using the drug was also at historically high levels in 2020 among people who are the same age, but not in college. 

This represents the highest levels of marijuana use recorded since the 1980s.

What does that mean for legalizing marijuana in Nebraska?

Nebraska marijuana activists announced on Wednesday that they have turned in a pair of complementary initiatives to legalize medical cannabis that they hope to place on the state’s 2022 ballot.
