Cannabis users are more successful and satisfied

Quote:


Household income was $93,800 (£73,470) for consumers in California, significantly higher than the $70,000 (£54811) average for abstainers.

Cannabis consumers are frequently affiliated with lazy, unsuccessful and apathetic labels. But, contrary to the popular stereotype new research suggests they are in fact among the most satisfied and successful among us. 

The study, conducted by market researchers BDS Analytics, surveyed consumers and abstainers across a wide variety of mental, social and financial factors. These included life satisfaction levels, attitudes towards parenting and employment data.

The survey analysed extensive data from two US states that have voted to legalise the sale of cannabis - California and Colorado.

Debunking myths of low motivation and under-achievement, in California it was found that 20 percent of consumers had graduated with a master’s degree while the figure was 12 percent for those who wouldn’t consider trying cannabis.

In terms of household income, the figure was $93,800 (£73,470) for consumers, significantly higher than the $70,000 (£54811) average for abstainers.

Similar results were found in Colorado with 64 percent of cannabis consumers in full-time jobs, compared to 54 percent of those who would not consider consuming the drug.

The finding that consumers are more likely to be parents also refutes the familiar stereotype of cannabis users being irresponsible. In California, 64 percent of consumers had started a family, while the figure for abstainers stood at 55 percent.

In terms of life satisfaction, nearly five in ten Colorado consumers agreed that they are more satisfied with life today than they were a year ago, compared to about four in ten among those who avoid cannabis.

Healthier habits and social activity also correlated. In Colorado, 36 percent of consumers described themselves as “very social people”, whereas only 28 percent of marijuana avoiders said the same.

Consumers in both Colorado and California also said they enjoyed outdoor recreation at significantly higher rates.

Volunteering was also more common for consumers with 38 percent in California offering their time to help others. By contrast, 25 percent of rejecters in the state said they volunteered.

“Cannabis consumers are far removed from the caricatures historically used to describe them,” says Linda Gilbert, head of the consumer research division at BDS, in a press release.

With public support for cannabis legalisation at an all time high, it seems that the common idea of the under-achieving, idle cannabis consumer could be on its way out.

I've been a cannabis user/advocate for a while and even I find this surprising news.

On a side note, as far as income goes, I definitely fall into the lower end of the spectrum...But work my ass off for it. Also am 34 and don't see kids anywhere in my future...Not out of apathy but quite the opposite, out of fear and disgust for mankind. (I live in the Galveston bay are of Houston. In Texas, not only is there no incentive whatsoever to do anything ecological like recycling, but if you do want to recycle, you have to drive out to one of the few recycling center out in the middle of nowhere and practically PAY THEM to take your separated plastics, glasses, papers, etc.)

The report is from the "Leader in cannabis business intelligence," and you can see the actual methodology if you buy the report for $6,500. Beyond the obvious shortcoming in that the findings are unique to legal states, it seems full of bias.

...the whole experience is (and is as) a profound piece of knowledge.  It is an indellible experience; it is forever known.  I have known myself in a way I doubt I would have ever occurred except as it did.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.
