Average pot user consumes 123 joints per year, state estimates

published September 24, 2013

 

By Bob Young

Seattle Times staff reporter

 

The state of Washington is counting on the average marijuana user to smoke a joint every three days.

 

Under the state’s consumption estimate for a legal pot market, the math breaks down to 80 million joints, or the equivalent in pot, smoked by roughly 650,000 adults every year. That’s 123 joints per user annually.

 

The state’s consumption estimate is important because it drives licensing for pot production, including the number of growers and the size of their operations. Underestimating statewide consumption could hand customers to illicit dealers, according to state officials. Overestimating could lead to surplus weed being diverted to other states.

 

But the state recognizes that the joint is losing popularity, particularly with younger stoners. A panel discussion at the Drug Policy Alliance’s upcoming biennial conference is even titled: “Is the joint obsolete?”

 

Edibles, topicals and concentrates, such as hash oil, have become so popular  that the state figures the market for those products will be as large as the more traditional buds and flowers combusted in joints and pipes.

Well, I go through about 1-1.5g of cannabis a day. If I lived there, I could pay for several casual users all by myself. Just think if cannabis were actually covered by insurance as it should be...

suffering within yourself, and the truth leaves you dying alone. The pain behind the eyes has a destiny, so use the hate to fuel the fire inside,. choices leave you trapped, and every route you choose is a path that leads back to the start. you might accept defeat in a world out to get you, but the finger on the trigger is yours.
