Data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention shows that middle-aged Americans are statistically more inclined to use cannabis products than their teenage counterparts. The data revealed that among U.S. residents aged 12-17, only 7.4 percent admitted to regular consumption in 2014, 10 percent less than in 2002. Comparatively, 8 percent of Americans between 35-44 admit to using cannabis today, marking the first time the demographic surpassed teens in the category since the CDC started tracking the statistic in 2002.
