Alcohol — in no small part due to its legal status, for sure — is by far the most popular drug on college campuses in the United States.
Just more than 82 percent of college students have tried alcohol today, compared to just more than 88 percent 20 years ago. With the slightly falling rate of alcohol usage, and marijuana’s rise in 20 years from 26 percent to 32 percent, weed could presumably someday surpass booze as the drug of choice at institutions of higher education.
That would be a good thing, of course, since cannabis is far safer than beer, wine, or liquor.
