In the past, there was a significant disparity between male and female pot smokers. That is, lots of males were smoking pot while only a handful of females did the same thing. However, female smokers have caught up with their male counterparts. As noted by Entrepreneur, the number of female users of cannabis increased by almost 100% in 2018. In line with this, there are now more female smokers than male smokers.

In fact, a good percentage of high school dropouts have never tried using marijuana. However, the rate of smoking among people that attended college but dropped out is the highest.
Beyond a bachelor’s degree, the rate of smoking pot reduces as the level of education increases.
The figure and information above have shown you the demographic data of who’s out there smoking pot. While some of these sets of information may just be common knowledge for consumers, manufacturers and distributors of pot can use the data to improve different aspects of their business.
