Nearly all cannabis users (78%) reveal consuming the plant has positive impacts on their mental health in the latest Cannabis Consumer Report by Drive Research.

Survey data collected from 3,926 cannabis consumers across the U.S. also shows that most users believe cannabis positively impacts their overall happiness (79%) and makes them more social (63%).

It's a substantial percentage that only highlights the increase in cannabis usage as it becomes legal across more states.

In fact, the majority of cannabis consumers surveyed (78%) report their usage will only increase or remain the same in the next twelve months.

Due to these perceived benefits of cannabis, it has become a part of many daily routines with nearly 1 in 2 cannabis users reporting they consume it every day (48%). So much so, if an employer started requiring regular drug testing for cannabis, it would influence 56% of cannabis consumers to quit or not apply.
