Study Finds Alcohol and Opioid Use Cause More Secondhand Harm Than Marijuana Consumption Leave a comment

A new nationwide study reveals that secondhand harm from marijuana use is much less common than from alcohol. Respondents reported experiencing secondhand harm from alcohol nearly six times more often than from cannabis. Harms from opioids and other drugs were also reported to be more significant than those from marijuana.

Based on responses from 7,799 people in the 2020 U.S. National Alcohol Survey, researchers found that over a third (34.2 percent) had experienced secondhand harm related to alcohol at some point in their lives, while only 5.5 percent reported similar harm from cannabis.
