A new study finds "cannabis users typically make as much money as non-users, with $59.7k representing users and $57.5k for non-users. This demolishes the myth that cannabis users are automatically lazy, with no drive or motivation to be successful.
Cannabis users are also more likely to have children in the home, with 63% of users having children compared to 53% of non-users. Many people who responsibly use cannabis say it helps them to be more relaxed, and cannabis users say this translates into their parenting allowing them to have more patience with their children. The amount of successful cannabis-using parents in the population defeats the idea that cannabis users are irresponsible and unable to take care of others if they use cannabis.
Most cannabis consumption is done alone, despite the “pass the joint, let’s party” stereotype. Six in 10 cannabis users consume cannabis by themselves frequently and 87% at least occasionally by themselves. 62% of medical cannabis users frequently consume cannabis alone and 45% consume cannabis alone frequently for recreational purposes.
The report found that those who use cannabis tend to be more health-conscious than those who don’t use cannabis. This comes as no surprise for those who use cannabis and are involved in the cannabis community, but it may come as a shock to the general public. This point especially holds weight when it comes to medicinal cannabis users, who 'are more likely than recreational users to say that seeking/using natural or holistic remedies and staying informed about topics related to health and wellness play a big role in their life'.”
